Week 17 NFL Passing Statistics

By Chris Malumphy

Even though the Cowboys hope that he won't have to play this playoff season, they must be pleased to see his name near the top of the best quarterbacks for Week 17, albeit with just four attempts. Romo rejoined season long stalwarts Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers on the list just like the quartet had done many times in past.

Although the 49ers continued their losing ways, Colin Kaepernick continued to finish strong. Kaepernick earned a 122.3 passer rating in the 49ers 23-25 loss to the Seahawks. It was the third game in a row in which Kapernick topped a 90.0 rating. It was also the second week in a row that he completed more than 70% of his passes. For the season, Kaepernick finished with a 90.4 rating with 16 touchdown passes and just four interceptions. He also gained 468 yards rushing. On the downside, he was sacked 36 times, 9.8% of his "dropbacks." Still, Kaepernick may have resuscitated his career, although he will have to do it with a new coach, either in San Francisco or elsewhere, now that Chip Kelly has been fired.

Kirk Cousins certainly didn't help his efforts to earn a long-term contract by playing poorly versus the Giants. The Redskins are now placed into a real quandary about how to respond to his contract demands. Cam Newton finished a down year with ratings of 44.5 and 51.2 in the Panthers' last two games, both losses.

Carson Wentz must have been happy to get another win under his belt even if it was against the Cowboys backups. In the game, Wentz had a passer rating of 93.7, the first time he topped 90 since Week 8. He finished the season at 79.3. Recall that teams need to have game day ratings of 90 or above to have a reasonable chance of winning.

Ryan Fitzpatrick finished his disappointing up-and-mostly-down season on a positive note with a 109.0 rating in a victory over the disorganized Bills. Landry Jones came home a winner while replacing Ben Roethlisberger, but his statistics don't reflect how difficult it was for the Steelers to beat the hapless, mistake-prone Browns in overtime. Sam Bradford finished his season with his 11th game in which he completed at least 70% of his passes. He had only one game under 60% all year, 58.5% in Week 7 versus the Eagles. Yet he only led the Vikings to a 7-8 record. Teammate Shaun Hill led the Vikings to victory in Week 1. Carson Palmer continued his hot streak of the past few weeks but it was way too late for the Cardinals who finished 7-8-1. Top draft pick Jared Goff led the Rams to a seventh consecutive defeat and has yet to win a game. Connor Cook finally got on the field for the Raiders, but it was not an ideal situation since he may now be called upon to start in the playoffs due to injuries to both Derek Carr and Matt McGloin.
