Actually, season passer rating is based on total number of attempts, completions, TDs and INTs over the year, and is NOT averaged by game (so games with tons of attempts or TDs or whatever mean more than games with fewer attempts, TDs, etc.). Anyway, it would take a monster game, but he could do it. Since the formula takes into account many things, there are different ways to get there. I played with it in my RTG spreadsheet for a bit and ended up with some interesting ways it could be done:
First, if he repeats his Miami game from week 7 he would do it:
21 of 25 for 354 yards and 6 TDs
Gives him a season rating of 121.4 for the all time record!
Some other lines that would put him at 121.1 for the year. They keys seem to be lots of TDs and a VERY HIGH CMP %:
22 of 28 for 375 yards and 6 TDs -- similar to first Jets game, but with more TDs
29 of 31 for 400 yards and 5 TDs -- with only 5 TDs, the CMP has to be near perfect
28 of 31 for 350 yards and 6 TDs -- this is somewhat reasonable
38 of 40 for 400 yards and 6 TDs
34 of 40 for 400 yards and 7 TDs -- too crazy I think from here down
35 of 40 for 380 yards and 7 TDs
