Passer Rating

Passer Rating is the NFL quarterback rating system for statistical purposes since 1960.

The Passer Rating is calculated by the quarterback's statistical performance on completion percentage, passing yardage, touchdowns and interceptions. The current "passer rating" or "quarterback rating" system was conceived by Pro Football Hall of Fame's Don Smith in 1973. The best passer rating that a quarterback can obtain in the NFL is 158.3.
