Today’s Sports Stat: October 9, 2017

Ben Roethlisberger had a rough day… five interceptions, no TD passes in the Steelers’ 30-9 loss to Jacksonville.

Roethlisberger became the 68th QB in NFL history to have a game (it was the 77th game) with five or more interceptions and no TD passes. The last QB to do this was last season when the Jets’ Ryan Fitzpatrick had six interceptions and no TD passes in a game versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

George Blanda holds the league record with four games with five or more interceptions and no TD passes. He is followed by Joe Ferguson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, John Hadl, Jim Hart, Joe Namath and Johnny Unitas, each who had two such games.

Teams that had a QB throw five interceptions and no TD passes in a game are 3-74; the last win was on November 18, 2012 when Atlanta’s Matt Ryan had five interceptions and no TD passes in the Falcons’ 23-19 win over Arizona.
