During the 2011 season, Brady also threw for a record-breaking 5,235 yards, setting both a single-season passing record and achieving the first 5,000 yard passing season in NFL history.

In 2018 and 2019, Philadelphia Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz did not throw an interception in either season, making him the first QB since Brady to complete a full season without an interception.

Additionally, in 2020, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger was the NFL season-interception leader, with a passer rating of 100. 0 and only throwing one interception in 15 starts. Roethlisberger became the first quarterback in Steelers’ history to go a whole season without throwing an interception.

Thus, several QBs have gone a whole season without an interception, showing that they have the skills and experience to make smart decisions and lead their teams to victory.

WHO has recorded 3 interceptions in one Super Bowl?

The record holder for most interceptions recorded in one Super Bowl is safety with the New England Patriots, safety Eugene Robinson, who recorded three interceptions during Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999.

Robinson intercepted two passes by Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway and one pass by backup quarterback Bubby Brister. This record is quite impressive, as the only other player to record two interceptions in a single Super Bowl is Seattle Seahawks defensive back Brandon Browner, who accomplished the feat during Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014.

Robinson’s three interceptions demonstrated his ability to read and react quickly and efficiently, and subsequently, it allowed the Patriots to secure their victory against the Denver Broncos by a score of 34-19.

Who holds the world record for most interceptions?

The National Football League (NFL) record for most career interceptions is held by the legendary Hall of Fame safety, Paul Krause. Krause was a defensive standout throughout his 16-year career, playing for the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings.

During that span, he totaled a record 81 interceptions, 40 more than the next closest active player, which he achieved over the span of 234 games.

Krause was especially adept at intercepting the ball, as he led the NFL in interceptions during five separate seasons and was named to the Pro Bowl eight times. He also recorded 6 Pro Bowl interceptions, which was a career-high.

What’s more, Krause intercepted a pass in 14 different playoff games and had a career-high 4 interceptions against the St. Louis Cardinals in 1976.

Krause’s unwavering commitment to the game earned him induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998 and his record for most career interceptions has since stood the test of time.

The NFL single-game record for most sacks is held by Derrick Thomas of the Kansas City Chiefs. On November 11th, 1990, Thomas sacked Seattle Seahawks quarterback Dave Krieg a whopping 7 times for a total loss of yardage of 52 yards.

Who leads NFL in Pick 6’s?

The NFL leader in “Pick 6’s,” or interceptions returned for touchdowns, is currently Washington Football Team safety Landon Collins with seven. Collins entered the NFL with the New York Giants in 2015 and became a household name as one of the best safeties in the league while with the Giants.

In March 2019, Collins was signed by the Washington Football Team and has since continued to dominate the defensive end of the ball. In the 2020 NFL season, Collins has six interceptions, seven total pick 6’s, 87 total tackles, 11 passes defended, and four forced fumbles.

Given his impressive production on the football field, there is no surprise that Collins is the current leader in interceptions returned for touchdowns in the NFL.
