Heading into Sunday, Russell Wilson had the league’s longest active streak for games played with a touchdown pass. That stood at 17 until the Rams shut the Seahawks offense down in an ugly 9-3 win. 

So now, you ask, which franchise quarterback has been the model of stabiity, connecting with a receiver in the end zone at least once a game? Well, that would be none other than 49ers signal-caller Blaine Gabbert.

Gabbert has thrown a touchdown in 12 straight games — in which he has played — dating to Week 5 of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, his teams are 4-8 in those 12 games. 

The much maligned former 10th overrall pick has definitely not been good, but he also hasn’t been as awful as public perception would suggest. In eight starts last season his passer rating was a serviceable 86.2.  And in San Francisco’s Week 1 win, Gabbert actually netted the league’s second-highest raw QBR score of 91.1, which is ESPN’s more advanced metric for analyzing quarterback performance. 

Gabbert was shaky against the

Panthers on Sunday, completing just 47 percent of his passes and throwing two picks. But he did rush for a score and throw for two more, while extending his esteemed streak.

So let the man with the most talked about backup quarterback in history hang his hat on this for at least six days. It may the last positive stat he ever owns.
