Jennings leads the NFL in receiving yards with 653

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is becoming one of the most dangerous long-ball threats in the NFL.

  Jennings leads the NFL in receiving yards with 653 this season.

  He's on pace for 1,741 yards, which would be the highest single-season total since Jerry Rice set the all-time NFL mark with 1,848 in 1995.

  Jennings credits quarterback Aaron Rodgers who he says can throw the ball with pinpoint accuracy.

  The receiver's four touchdown catches this year have averaged nearly 36 yards.

  Since entering the NFL in 2006, Jennings' 19 touchdowns have averaged about 37 yards, more than any other active player with at least 15 TD catches.
