Research Notes

  • Greg McElroy was sacked 11 times today. That is tied for the most sacks allowed in a single game by the Jets. They allowed 11 against the Cowboys in 1987. The Jets QB in that game was David Norrie.

  • Greg McElroy: 2nd QB since the AFL-NFL merger to be sacked 11 times in 1st NFL start (other: David Norrie, 1987 Jets during strike)
