    Could not find the record for lowest interceptions in a 16 game regular season

    8 Interceptions have to be pretty close to the record if not the lowest ever but didn't see anything about it anywhere.

    Is it a record?

    Doubt that it's a record as you are calculating it. If you calculate the TD to INT ratio, though, that should be a record if the TD number is over 20.

    50 to 8 is off the charts into the next universe.

    I dont think so.

    Besides wouldnt David Garrad (sp?) of Jacksonville be the record holder? Doesnt he have like 1 or 2?

    The TD to int ratio is also pretty awesome 50:8, that's a greater than 6:1 ratio!!

    Along with TD/Int ratio a meaningful stat would be the Int/pass att. I would guess Brady ranks very well in this measure.

    I never said anything about Chad having a great year. :confused:

    But yes, despite having Santana Moss, the Jets did not stretch the field that year.

    you really can't measure that way, b/c although he didn't play every down, least int has to be a team record, and 9 is not the best. Heck 8 is not the best either.

    Green Bay, 1966
