Jay Cutler Having Historically Accurate Season Throwing Ball To Wrong Team

The record for most interceptions in one season is 42, set by George Blanda in 1962. Jay Cutler would have to somehow be significantly worse than he's already been throughout this season to reach that milestone, but at 25 picks through 14 games, Cutler is on pace to notch a spot in the record books.

After tossing three more passes to the wrong team in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Cutler is now averaging 1.8 INTs/game this year. With two games left, this puts him on pace for 28.5 interceptions.

Let's round that up to 29, which would tie Cutler with Brett Favre's '05 campaign for most interceptions thrown in a single season since Vinny Testaverde threw 35 in 1988 for the throwback Bucs. Cutler, Favre and Dickey would then be tied for 12th all-time on the single-season INT list.

But remember: This is based on Cutler's season average for picks per game. It's entirely possible that he could throw in another five-interception game and propel himself into the top 10, amongst the likes of, well, George Blanda, who also holds the No. 7 spot on the list. Although Blanda is a Hall of Famer, so Cutler has that in his favor.
