NFL Passer's Ratings Take a Beating

By John Turney
Wind, rain, snow, and NFL defenders had a moment of revenge this week as NFL passers performed less than stellarly yesterday.

Russell Wilson threw 5 interceptions, two more than his previous high.  Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, and Ben Roethlisberger were all picked off three times.

In all, the NFL passer rating is 75.2 so far in Week 14 and interception percentage was 3.5%, much higher than in Weeks 1-13 combined.
Even with yesterday's performances, the NFL passer rating is still on pace for a record high, and interceptions are 2.2% on pace the be the lowest-ever in NFL history (record is last year's 2.4%)

So, with the rest of December and January looming we will see if the records will fall, or if NFL defenders will shine in December and slow NFL passing games.
