Tampa Bay Buccaneers Brad Johnson's four interceptions rank second in the NFL. Only Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon has thrown less this season (one). The Bucs' single-season record for the least amount of interceptions thrown is 11 in 1982 (9 games), and Johnson is on pace to break that.
What's better than Johnson's low interception total is the fact that he has throw nine touchdown passes this season. And over the last three games, Johnson has thrown five touchdowns and no interceptions.
"He's smart enough to understand that no matter what happens in the game," Bucs head coach Tony Dungy said, "If we don't turn it over, we're going to have a chance to win at the end."
The Bucs' record over the last three games is 2-1 with the lone loss being a one-point defeat at Lambeau Field against Green Bay. Needless to say, Johnson, who has completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,814 yards, is playing some good football for the Buccaneers this season.
