Quarterbacks With Three Interception Games Over The Age Of 40

NFL quarterbacks often play past the age of 40. Those that do are usually either superstars ending their careers or very good ones who have transitioned to being backups. Today we’re taking a look at 40 year old quarterbacks who have had some pretty tough games. Throwing three or more interceptions in a game is usually a good recipe for a loss. Let’s look at the 40+ year old quarterbacks who have had those three plus interception games.

The first 40+ year old quarterback to throw three interceptions in a game was the legendary Johnny Unitas. He did so in a Chargers loss to the Redskins in 1973. One year later, two quarterbacks would join him in that club when Sonny Jurgensen and Earl Morrall also had 3+ interception games. It wouldn’t happen again though for over 20 years when in 1995, Vince Evans of the Raiders threw 5 interceptions in a loss to the Chargers.

Other quarterbacks who have “accomplished” this feat include Brett Favre, Brad Johnson, Warren Moon, and Vinny Testaverde. Testaverde and Favre are tied for the record for most 3+ interception games by a quarterback over the age of 40 with three apiece.
