Ignore this post if you’re a Cleveland Browns fan. For the rest of us, however, enjoy.

Today, I’m taking a look at the most consecutive regular seasons without at least 3 touchdown passes. My article only includes franchise quarterbacks (guys given extensions or treated like the franchise QB), as rookies, 2nd-year QBs like Derek Carr and Teddy Bridgewater, and journeymen are not considered.

Here’s the chart below.

Yep. Russell Wilson has not thrown for 3 TD passes in a single game since December, 2013. His 27 game drought (including last night’s Thursday Night game) is easily the most amongst franchise quarterbacks. But he’s not alone, as Colin Kaepernick added another game to his drought last night.

A few notes:

  1. Guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Drew Brees were/are out due to injury, so this only counts based on the games they played in.
  2. The lower your ranking, the better.
  3. I’m not trying to that Russell Wilson sucks at throwing for touchdown passes. There’s no agenda behind this. I’m just fascinated by what’s currently happening, and decided to post on this. So take this however you will.

There are 20 franchise quarterbacks on this chart. The Cleveland Browns have had 23 quarterbacks start since 1999. Sad.
