Schaub Adds to Possible League Record Breaking Season

Matt Schaub has thrown 23 touchdown passes this season.

Judy Battista of the New York Times reported that the 2010-2011 NFL regular season is on track to set the record for most passing touchdowns in a season.  With only 18 passing touchdowns to go, the current season has tallied 714 touchdown passes.  The record of 732 was done in 2004.  Battista reported there have only been 377 rushing touchdowns, which projects to be the second-lowest in league history.

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has 23 touchdown passes on the season.  He’s tied with four other quarterbacks (Jay Cutler, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Josh Freeman and David Garrard) at eleventh most this season.  The leaders include Tom Brady (34), Drew Brees (31), Peyton Manning (31), Eli Manning (30) and Phillip Rivers (30).  For today’s game at Jacksonville, look for Schaub to continue to the air.  The Jaguars rank 26th against the pass and have given up 27 passing touchdowns on the season – sixth most behind the tied first Dallas and Houston.
