How many fumbles did Charles Tillman force?

44 gaffes Tillman has 38 interceptions, 44 forced fumbles, 12 recovered, and 10 defensive touchdowns in 168 games during 13 seasons, 12 with the Bears. He is the all-time leader in forced fumbles among linebackers.

Tillman was a three-year starter at Illinois and led the team in fumble recoveries each year. The Chicago Bears selected him with the ninth pick of the 2005 NFL Draft. He is only the second player from the University of Illinois to be chosen as their top selection (Charles Benson).

During his career, Tillman has won a Super Bowl ring with the Bears, a NFC Championship Game title with Chicago, and is a two-time first-team All-Pro selection. In 2014, he was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame by his fellow players for his performance over the last decade plus.

Tillman's number 56 has been retired by the University of Illinois.

He played a major role in helping the Bears defense that included other notable players such as Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, and Aaron Glenn, rank No. 1 in the NFL during the 2007 season. The Bears went on to win the Super Bowl that year. During his tenure with the Bears, Tillman never missed a game due to injury.

How many interceptions did Rex Grossman have in the Super Bowl?

Twenty interceptions Grossman, on the other hand, struggled to prevent turnovers, throwing 20 interceptions and losing five fumbles during the season. He turned the ball over 18 times in the final seven games of the season.

Grossman's inability to protect the football led to Tennessee being penalized 117 times during the season, second only to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning (118) who was penalized frequently while playing for the same team. The Titans were also called for 12 penalties per game, most in the NFL.

The number of flags thrown during Tennessee's games increased from 77 in 2007 to 99 in 2008, as officials became more aggressive against the Titans for illegal contact practices that occurred throughout the week leading up to the Super Bowl.

Grossman's poor play at quarterback cost the Titans a chance at winning the Super Bowl. Despite having the best record in the NFL, they lost 23-17 to Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game. Chris Johnson was held to just 51 yards rushing on 22 attempts by the Steelers defense. Mike Shanahan, who was serving as a senior advisor to Titans' owner Bud Adams during the playoffs, said after the game that he believed if Grossman had been able to stay healthy all year long, his presence in the lineup would have helped the Titans reach the Super Bowl.

How many fumbles are there in a game?

For four decades, NFL fumble rates have been progressively falling. There has been just 2.59 fumbles per game this season entering Week 12, the third-lowest rate in history, after only 2011 (2.54) and 2013. (2.56). The all-time high was 4.53 per game in 1976.

The decline can be attributed to several factors. First, coaches are taking away the opportunity by not allowing their players to touch the ball outside of the pocket or on passes. Second, athletes are becoming better at protecting the ball. In fact, there have been fewer than three fumbles per game since 2008. And finally, more sophisticated rules have been put into place that try to eliminate unnecessary roughness while still allowing for exciting football.

When you look at the record-setting games over the last 40 years, you will see that there were generally more than two fumbles per game. For example, in 2007 Tom Brady and New England beat Dallas with a total of six fumbles. Three of them were lost by the Cowboys and three were recovered by the Patriots. In 2001 Marshall Faulk had two fumbles and one touchdown return for a total of three fumbles in San Diego's 48-37 win over Atlanta. In 1999 Todd Collins had two fumble returns for touchdowns in Baltimore's 34-31 win over Washington. And so on and so forth.

How many times did Brett Favre fumble?

Favre has the record for most career fumbles with 166, in addition to all interception records. He's been sacked 525 times, the most of any quarterback.

In fact, there are only three other quarterbacks who have more than 100 passes thrown their way: Joe Montana (212), Roger Staubach (205) and Dan Marino (199). What's more is that Favre is the only quarterback who has lost as many as 10 games.

Favre had 16 fumbles during his tenure with the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 2010. He returned only nine for a total of 89 yards and one touchdown. He also threw two interceptions in those games. Both interceptions were returned for touchdowns: One by Barry Sanders and another by Derrick Thomas.

During his time with the New Orleans Saints from 2011-12, Favre threw four fumbles and didn't return any of them. All four fumbles came in one game against the Atlanta Falcons when he was 40 years old. That's how many career fumbles he has now at age 47. Two of those fumbles were lost causes because of penalties before they could be returned for points.

Favre already has more career turnovers (409) than any other player in NFL history.

How many fumbles does Adrian Peterson have?

I couldn't locate per-game fumble figures for Payton's period, but he fumbled 86 times in his career, which equals to 2.0 percent of his touches (rushing attempts + catches). Sweetness maintained his fumble rate under 2.0 percent in eight of his thirteen seasons. If we assume that pace continues, then Peterson will have 91 fumbles by the time his career is over.

Peterson's fumbling rate was also below 2.0 percent in 2010 when he lost nine fumbles. The only other season where he lost more than four fumbles was 2007 when he had five losses. Overall, Peterson has fumbled 93 times in 206 games played (4.3 percent).

The table shows that while some players tend to fumble more often than others, most fumblers don't reach the number of Peterson's fumbles in a single season. However, if you were to average his fumbles per game over 16 years, then you would get close to one every other game played.
