For the fourth straight game, McGloin completed around 60 percent of his passes Sunday.
In the end, the quarterback still has to be a solid passer of the football. McGloin showed that he could lead a team downfield, throwing from the pocket as he completed around 60 percent of his passes for the fourth straight game. He's showing improvement in his passing game week-by-week since taking the job in Houston.
McGloin went 18-of-31 on the day for 245 yards and two touchdowns, his first multi-touchdown game since Week 11 in Houston.
His pair of touchdown strikes, a 48-yard strike to Rod Streater (or a miracle, depending how you see it) and a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mychal Rivera on 4th-and-goal in the game's final minutes, put McGloin ahead of Terrelle Pryor in the touchdown category with six. Pryor has five.
McGloin also has a higher touchdown-to-interception ratio, 6-3, or 2-1, compared to Pryor's 1-2 (5-10).
It took Pryor eight games to get to his current 1,579 yards passing total, whereas McGloin is already at 1,044 after just four games, averaging about 239 yards passing per game. If he continues at this rate, he'll surpass Pryor by the end of the season.
