NFL Week 11—Four QBs Threw for Four Interceptions

By John Turney
Mason Rudolph, Kyle Allen, Jameis Winston, and Philip Rivers each threw for four interceptions this week.
The last time four quarterbacks did that in the same week was December 16, 1983, which was
Week 16 of that year.

The quartet that week?   Lynn Dickey, John Elway, Ron Jaworski, and  Joe Theismann.

A year earlier, Week 15, 1982, the fivesome of Terry Bradshaw, Archie Manning, Joe  Theismann, Jim Zorn, and Jim Plunkett threw for at least four picks that day.

Week 10, 1980 also had four quarterbacks throw four interceptions— Vince Ferragamo,
Jim Hart, Danny White, and Jim Zorn.

Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, Steve Myer, and Joe Pisarcik all threw four interceptions
in Week 4, 1977.

That is the complete list since the 1970 merger so you can see how rare an event it is,
especially in this era, where interceptions are around 2.5% of all attempts as opposed
to almost double that when the rest of these groups of quarterbacks threw four picks.
