Weekend Trivia: Overtime Touchdowns

In 2014, there were five overtime touchdowns: Two of them came from the Vikings: Teddy Bridgewater threw a short pass to Jarius Wright that went for 87 yards against the Jets, while Anthony Barr returned a fumble 27 yards for the winning score against the Bucs. Khiry Robinson also beat Tampa Bay in overtime with an 18-yard touchdown. The final two came from Seattle: Marshawn Lynch rushed for a 6-yarder against the Broncos, and Russell Wilson threw a 35-yarder to Jermaine Kearse to win the NFC Championship against the Packers.

There have been 9 quarterbacks to throw multiple overtime touchdowns, with Wilson being the latest one (he also did so as a rookie against the Bears). Terry Bradshaw is the only quarterback with exactly three such throws, but there is one quarterback to throw four touchdowns in overtime. Can you guess who?

    I didn’t even have a guess until I got Hint #1. After the hint, my first guess was the correct answer, but then I changed my mind and thought it was Brett Favre instead.

    I bet there aren’t even too many QB’s who threw ANY TD passes in both 1993 and 2002.

  • For the first question, I didn’t even have a guess until hint 3, then I guessed right.

    For the second, I somehow guessed it right immediately. I have no idea why, but he was the first person to come to mind.
