Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 21 consecutive passes at one point in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, tying for the third-longest single-game streak of its kind in NFL history, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info). He ties with Rich Gannon, who completed 21 straight passes against the Denver Broncos in 2002 while a member of the Oakland Raiders.
The record of 22 consecutive completions is held by Mark Brunell, who did it for the 2006 Washington Redskins, along with David Carr, who matched Brunell's mark as a member of the Houston Texans later that season, per NFL.com.
In any case, Flacco somehow had a poor day despite nearly matching a league record, as he ultimately completed 29 of his 40 pass attempts for only 214 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions, though he did have a seven-yard rushing score that helped his team improve to 3-0.
The Ravens only scored three points after the drive on which Flacco's streak ended, but it was still enough to overcome a Jacksonville team that had to fight its way through a trio of interceptions from quarterback Blake Bortles.
Flacco and the Ravens now head home to face the Oakland Raiders, having a shot to start 4-0 before the schedule starts to get a bit tougher.
