4 straight INTs - 1977 Steelers-Jets

4 straight INTs - 1977 Steelers-Jets

Postby Bryan » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:08 am

I was reading an account of the 1977 Steelers-Jets game, and the story said the Jets offense threw interceptions on 4 consecutive offensive plays...2 by Matt Robinson, who got pulled, then 2 more by Richard Todd. Can anyone confirm if this actually happened? And if so, is that some sort of record?

No, it was three consecutive plays. They ran the ball a few times before the 4th INT. It was four consecutive pass plays.

In the Cowboys' 1980 Thanksgiving Day massacre of Seattle, there were interceptions thrown on three consecutive plays by both teams.
