Last week Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers and St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis each completed over 85% of their passes in a game. Rodgers was 19 of 22 (86.4 completion rate) in Green Bay’s win over Carolina, while Davis was 18 of 21 (85.7 completion rate) in the Rams upset of Seattle. It was only the third time since 1966 that two QBs had a completion rate over 85% in a game (minimum of 20 pass attempts) in the same week. It happened December 27, 2009 when Tom Brady and Drew Brees did it, and it also happened earlier that season when Brett Favre and Kurt Warner did it in games in the same week (September 20).
For Davis, it was his first NFL game with a 85% completion rate. For Rodgers, on the other hand, this was his second such game. He did it in a playoff game against the Falcons in January, 2011 when he completed 31 of 36 passes (86.1% completion rate). Rodgers became the 14th QB in the Super Bowl era to have multiple games with an 85% or higher completion rate. (Note: He became the second Packers QB on this list. The other? Lynn Dickey. Favre is on the list with two such games, but he got his as the Vikings QB.)
Here’s a look at those 14 QBs with two or more games of completing 85% or more of their passes in a game (minimum of 20 pass attempts).
