15 Darrelle Revis stats that capture his all-time dominance

At his peak, Darrelle Revis was arguably the most unbeatable cornerback in NFL history.

2009 season

Throwing at him was a futile proposition

Trying Darrelle Revis in 2009 was a downright foolish idea.

Including his three playoff games, on targets in his direction, Revis allowed 48-of-127 passes to be completed (37.8% completion rate) for 502 yards (3.95 per target), two touchdowns, and eight interceptions. That’s a passer rating of 29.1, which remains the lowest mark allowed in one season by any qualified cornerback as far back as coverage data is available (since 2006).

How awful is a 29.1 passer rating for a quarterback? On September 8, 1991, former Jets franchise quarterback Ken O’Brien had a game in Seattle where he completed 13-of-29 passes (44.8%) for 128 yards (4.4 per attempt), no touchdowns, and two picks – a 29.1 passer rating. That was the fourth-worst passer rating O’Brien ever posted out of 112 career starts.

When throwing at Revis, quarterbacks performed at a level reminiscent of the absolute worst games they ever played.

Achieving record-setting dominance at the highest difficulty level

Revis set his still-standing passer rating record (29.1) in a situation where he had no business doing so.
