NFL: Quarterbacks with Six or Seven Touchdowns in a Single Game (Since the Merger)
You can check out the comprehensive list of quarterbacks with the most passing touchdowns in a game, ever, here. But what about just looking since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, as we finish up our three-part series of the most (by air) point-productive games for QBs (see the other two links below)?
Seven passing touchdowns in one game is the all-time record, pre- and post-merger. Since the beginning, seven quarterbacks have done it. Since the Merger? Two – and both did it last season (2013). It’s Peyton Manning (again) and, of all people, the surprising Nick Foles.
Another 21 have thrown six touchdowns in a game, but there are repeaters: Manning twice and Tom Brady thrice.
Below find all occurrences with links to the box scores.
