Favre Looks To Top The Century Mark For 100th Time

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 10, 2009 – 10:18 am

Topping the century mark is a phrase typically associated with RBs and the standard of rushing for 100 yards in a game. It’s commonly accepted that if a RB rushes for 100 yards in a given game, then that player had a good game.

While Vikings RB Adrian Peterson’s ability to top the century mark will be important in this weekend’s game against the Detroit Lions, we should also keep our eye on another Vikings player who is about to top the century mark in another category for the 100th time.

QB Brett Favre, who is 2nd among all NFL QBs this season with a passer rating of 106.0, has a chance this Sunday to record his 100th game with a passer rating of 100 or better. So far in 2009, Favre has recorded 5 games with a 100 passer rating, including a 115.3 rating the last time he suited up against the Lions. 

While the accomplishment of a 100+ passer rating represents success on an individual level for a QB, it also tends to represent team success as well, especially in Favre’s case. In the 99 previous games in which the 19-year veteran has recorded a passer rating of 100 or better, Favre’s teams 91-8.
