NFL quarterbacks so far have completed 61.4 percent of their passes this season. If it stays that way, it will be a new single-season record. In fact, a new record has been set in eight of the last nine years.
By comparison, Matt Hasselbeck is completing just 51 percent of his passes.
Mike Holmgren was critical of the team’s pass rush this week, even though they are tied for ninth in the NFL with 24 sacks.
The NFL record for fewest sacks in a season? In a 16-game season, the 1981 Baltimore Colts had just 13 sacks. The Kansas City Chiefs have only six this year, largely because they traded Jared Allen to Minnesota.
Arizona’s win in Seattle on Sunday marks the first time since 1968 that the Cardinals have won all of their road games against division opponents in a single season. The Cardinals were members of the NFC Century division in 1968 and beat Cleveland, New Orleans and Pittsburgh all on the road.
