Dan Patrick: “I don’t know if there is a simple answer to this, but your touchdown-to-interception ratio is remarkable… How do you avoid interceptions?”
Aaron Rodgers: “The easy answer is accuracy and limiting the number. There is always going to be those borderline plays, but when you’re putting the ball in pretty good spots, you’re going to eliminate a lot of the opportunities. There’s some you can’t do anything about; tipped balls, guys falling down, and slips, but the ones that you can, ya know, placement of footballs, seeing the field, and making the proper reads, I think I’ve been pretty good over the years with not throwing too many of those bad ones when you don’t see a guy.” (Full Interview Above)
Listen to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers explain how he attained the lowest touchdown-to-interception ratio in NFL history, as the 7-time Pro Bowler has thrown an interception on just 1.3% of his career pass attempts.
Rodgers’ 25/2 TD-INT ratio last season in 597 attempts came out to a microscopic 0.3% INT percentage, also a league record for the lowest single-season total in history.
