After Week 3 Of NFL, Some Surprisingly Terrible Performances By Top-Flight Quarterbacks

The NFL is very rarely predictable, and the 2011 season is no exception.

Here's some crazy stats in regards to starting quarterbacks this season so far:

  • Tom Brady threw as many interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills as he did the ENTIRE 2011 SEASON - Four.
  • Who leads the NFL in interceptions?
    • Phillip Rivers - 6
    • Matt Cassel - 5
    • Tom Brady - 5
Yes, Tom: FIVE Interceptions
  • Aaron Rodgers has picked up from where he left off in 2010: 71.8% completions, avg of 306 yards/game passing, eight touchdowns to one interception, and a QB rating of 120.9.
  • Despite the well-publicized sack rate of Jay Cutler, he has as many sacks as Tavaris Jackson, and only one more than Matt Ryan.
  • Mark Sanchez's stats have improved: his QB rating is 90.9, higher than Phillip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Jay Cutler, Matt Ryan, Kyle Orton, and Josh Freeman.
  • Jason Campbell currently having the best start he's ever had in his six years of starting experience: QB rating of 93.8, 3 TDs, one INT, 65.9% completions. Big reason why Raiders are 2-1.
Of course the season is still young.  I'd be shocked if Brady threw 10 interceptions for the season, but it would make things more interesting!
