The Arizona Cardinals started Brian Hoyer in their season finale against the San Francisco 49ers on December 30 making Hoyer the fourth Cardinals quarterback to start a game for the team in the 2012 campaign. John Skelton started six games, Kevin Kolb started five, and Ryan Lindley started four contests for the Cards prior to Hoyer’s start. Hoyer was also making his first start in the NFL.
The Cardinals were the only NFL team to start four different quarterbacks this past season; the Jets and Steelers each started three different QBs in 2012.
Hoyer was also the 27th different QB the Cardinals franchise has started in the last 25 seasons (since 1988). That tied them with the Cleveland Browns for the second most since 1988. The Chicago Bears have started the most different QBs since 1988… 28!
