“It might be an honor,” Jackson mentioned this week of the danger he will take this one down.

Jackson wishes 23 speeding yards to hit 1,000 and remains to be 468 from attaining three,000 throughout the air. Vick threw for a modest 2,474 yards the yr he set the QB speeding report … now not that Jackson recollects it smartly.

Nonetheless, he wishes 147 extra to take down Brett Favre … which might imply 37 in line with sport. Not really this yr, however stranger issues have came about.
7. Easiest finishing touch proportion in a season
This will have to be referred to as the “Drew Brees Annual Passing Mark for Accuracy” … or some such.

15. Maximum pick-sixes thrown in a season
Jameis Winston has piled up a league-worst 20 interceptions, and 4 had been taken the opposite direction for 6 issues. It is a stretch, however he will tie the mark of six pick-sixes (shared by means of Manning and the fewer immortal Rudy Bukich) if he serves up two extra.
16. Maximum pick-sixes returned in a season
Marcus Peters has a greater shot at this one. Naturally, he victimized Winston in September whilst enjoying for the Rams, then took two extra INTs to the home after being traded to the Ravens. Peters wishes only one extra to proportion the report of 4 recently co-owned by means of Eric Allen, Ken Houston and Jim Kearney. And with the Expenses, Jets, Browns and Steelers nonetheless at the time table, now not outrageous to suppose Peters may simply transform the primary to get 5.
