Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Quarterbacks with the Most Consecutive Games with a Passing Touchdown
Brady had thrown for a touchdown 52 games in a row, when he and the New England Patriots ran into the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5 of this season. The Bengals won 13-6, blanking Brady in the TD department.
Brady needed two more games to catch Brees, the leader at 54.
Below are the 20 longest passing-touchdown streaks ever. More proof that the NFL today is undoubtedly a quarterback league – 13 of the 20 have occurred since 1997. Also, 17 different franchises are represented. This is a stat that’s spread around.
Manning appears twice, but where’s Joe Montana, John Elway, Steve Young, Roger Staubach, Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Bart Starr and more? A bunch of the greatest QBs of all time didn’t make the cut here.
