Watch Aaron Rodgers’ amazing trick pass, hitting a target from 50 yards away

NFL quarterbacks can do amazing ball tricks, and since Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the game, it isn't a surprise a video of a pretty spectacular throw has emerged.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback stood 50 yards from the target, with an opening that seems maybe a little larger than a peach basket, and made hitting it look easy. Nothing but net.

It was like a full-court shot in basketball, except that it was the distance of about one and two-thirds basketball courts.

Not that we didn't know about Rodgers' skills already, but the video shows exactly what kind of deep accuracy Rodgers has.

The Packers.com video keeps rolling for a few more seconds after the trick and caught a funny moment. Rodgers walks away from the quarterbacks like what he did was no big deal, then spots the Packers.com camera and breaks into a grin before doing his championship belt celebration move.

Rodgers usually only uses that celebration for touchdowns, but we'll give him a pass. This was a pretty cool trick.
