Today’s Sports Stat: October 30, 2017

Houston Texans rookie QB Deshaun Watson passed for 402 yards and four TDs in his team’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks yesterday. He became the 56th QB in league history to have 400 yards and four TD passes in the same game.

Even more impressive, however, is that as a rookie, Watson became only the third rookie QB in NFL history to reach four TD passes and 400 yards passing in a game. The other rookie QBs in this group: Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (five TD passes and 422 yards in a November 22, 2009 game versus the Cleveland Browns) and St. Louis Rams QB Marc Bulger (four TD passes and 453 yards in a November 10, 2002 contest versus the San Diego Chargers).

Taking all quarterbacks in to consideration, Peyton Manning tops the list of QBs with most games with four or more TD passes and over 400 yards passing… he had eight of those games in his career. Following Manning on this list are Dan Marino with seven games and Drew Brees with five games.
