Most passes without an INT: Tom Brady nearing Aaron Rodgers’ record interception-free streak

Tom Brady is closing in on another NFL record. Oh, the shock!

The 45-year old hasn’t had the best of seasons so far. But he hasn’t yielded an interception since Week 1. And if he can find a way to avoid the opposition’s hands in his next 30 pass attempts, Brady will add another feather to his NFL record cap, breaking Aaron Rodgers’ mark for most consecutive pass attempts without an INT.

Rodgers’ record sits at 402. Brady is at 372 passes heading into Week 10. And for all his struggles on — and off — the field, when it comes to hitting the target (and missing defenders) Brady’s accuracy is a sight to behold.

This isn’t Brady’s first foray with the record. He held the record before Rodgers, making 358 passes without a pick from Week 7 of the 2010 season to Week 1 of the 2011 season (granted, he threw three interceptions in the Patriots’ playoff loss to the Ravens in 2010, but the league separates regular season and postseason statistics, keeping Brady’s record intact).

Rodgers overtook Brady’s place in the record books in 2018. Now, Brady is on the brink of recapturing his interception-less crown.

If Brady can keep his accuracy going, he’s also on pact to smash Rodgers’ record for lowest single season interception rate. Brady currently sits at a .25 interception rate (one interception in 398 attempts). If he stays on pace, he’ll snap another Rodgers record: the Green Bay QB had a .34 interception rate in that legendary 2018 campaign.
