He has thrown 6 touchdowns against just 1 interception, showcasing his strong arm and decision-making ability. His passer rating sits at a high 179.4, indicating his efficiency in moving the chains.

Notably, Rogers has thrown 5 touchdowns and zero interceptions, which underlines his precision. His passer rating is also impressive at 178.6, hardly distinguishable from Daniels’.
