Top 20 Quarterbacks Sacked the Most in a Single Season
But which quarterbacks hit the ground the most in a single season?
Carr holds the all-time record, joining Cunningham as the only two QBs sacked more than 70 times in a season. Ouch.
No wonder their careers were shorter than they should have been – both missed tons of games due to injury and, well, getting sacked so many times.
Three years after setting the record, Carr was sacked another 68 times.
Cunningham appears amongst the top 20 a punishing four times. It was fun to watch him scramble with the ball, though. He was the original running quarterback.Follow @VinGetz
