The 20 Best Single-Season Completion Percentages in NFL History (Quarterbacks)
After four games, Peyton Manning is vying to become the most accurate quarterback in a single season, sitting at an unbelievable 75 percent completion percentage.
Only four QBs have ever completed at least 70 percent of their passes in a one campaign, led by Drew Brees, who not only did it twice, but holds the top two positions. He’s tied with, here’s a twist, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Ken Anderson in second.
