The problem games are the ones where multiple players, usually quarterbacks, threw interceptions.For example, the record for defensive interception returns for touchdowns in a game is four, set by the Seattle Seahawks in 1984 against Kansas City.Note: the above list includes quarterbacks whose careers began before 1960, but the pick six data is for post-1960 (while all other data is career data).I can confirm that six quarterbacks have thrown three picks six in the same game, and the number may even be slightly higher.
For those of you who are blind or who were out of the country last spring, Honey Bee Novak is, or was, the very sexy, very spaced-out coheroine of Rollergirls, an NBC miniseries that captured the hearts, minds and private parts of a large segment of America. There was a morality clause (thank you, Marilyn Chambers) that said if you'd done nudity, you were unfit for television. "I didn't want to get press just because I was in bed with someone. I wanted to be Marcy Hanson, actress, not Marcy Hanson, girlfriend." The last episode of Rollergirls was a crisis for Marcy.
If you’re curious, Aaron Rodgers has thrown just one pick six in his entire career.
That gives him a rate 0.032 pick sixes per pass attempt, the lowest among all passes with 1500 attempts since 1960.
Most of the time, only one quarterback will throw an interception in any given team game.
Fifty years from now, if you look at this box score from week six, you will be able to know for sure that Peyton Manning threw the interception that Paul Posluszny returned for a touchdown.
