Sam Howell is the NFL’s leading passer

Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell is completing 66.5% of his passing attempts for 2,783 yards, with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions through 10 games.

After the completion of Week 10 games, Howell is now the NFL’s leading passer, 15 yards ahead of Houston quarterback C.J. Stroud. It is important to note that Howell has one more game played than some others on the list.

But let’s analyze where Howell ranks in some important numbers:

  • Passing yards per game: 5th (278.3)

  • Touchdowns: T-3rd (17)

  • Completions: 1st (264)

  • Passing yards: 1st (2,783)

If you had asked any Washington fan if Howell would be performing this way after 10 games, they’d probably tell you the Commanders would be a first-place team.

After all, the defense was supposed to be the team’s strength. Remember those times?

Only four quarterbacks in NFL history have more passing yards through 11 games than Howell. Check out this list.

Even more impressive, Howell is one of only eight quarterbacks with four 300-yard passing games in their first 11 career games.

Howell has decreased his sack rate over the last three weeks, and his play has dramatically improved. The quarterback position has gone from the most significant question to a building block.
