Sam Bradford Sets NFL Record for Single-Season Completion Percentage

Former Sooner Sam Bradford may have been joined the Vikings ship late a little late, but he’s made his time in Minnesota count.

En route to a Vikings 38-10 win over the Bears Sunday, Bradford set the NFL record for single-season completion percentage, finishing his first season in purple at 71.6.

The previous record was held by Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who finished the 2011 season at 71.2. Bradford also set a franchise record for most completions in a season with 395. He surpassed Daunte Culpepper, who had 379 completions in 2004 and led the league and also topped Culpepper’s franchise-best completion percentage of 69.2 in 2004.

The Vikings accomplished a comfortable fourth-quarter lead and sat Bradford, at which point he finished the day 25-of-33 passing for 250 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 114.5.

Bradford said the stats are nice, but he’d quickly trade them in for team wins. (Vikings)
