Sam Koch Is the Most Efficient Passer in NFL History

Baltimore Ravens punter Sam Koch (4) tosses a pass on a fake punt during the first half of an NFL football game against the Washington Football Team, Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020, in Landover, Md.

If talking about completion percentage, there's nobody better than Ravens punter Sam Koch.

Koch threw a 15-yard pass on a fake punt in Sunday's 31-17 win in Washington that now makes him 7-for-7 in his career. He is the only passer in NFL history with a minimum of seven passing attempts and a 100 percent completion rate.

It was fourth-and-9 from Washington's 43-yard line when Koch took the snap and coolly found wide receiver Miles Boykin for the completion.

Three plays later, Lamar Jackson hit Mark Andrews with a 25-yard touchdown that put the Ravens ahead, 21-7, in the second quarter. As Head Coach John Harbaugh said, it was "very important" in the game to give the Ravens some cushion.

"He's just so good at it. He's clutch as can be," Harbaugh said. "And then Miles, he's a young guy – to step in that situation and make that play was tremendous."

Bill Donckers was a quarterback for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1976 and 1977. Of players with at least five passes, Donckers and Koch were the only ones with a perfect completion percentage. Donckers was 6-for-6, and now Koch has bested him at 7-for-7. San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was 6-of-6 at one time, but now sits at 7-of-8.

Jackson has made great strides in improving his completion percentage over his young career, but even he can't compare to Koch.

"He's 100 percent," Jackson said with a laugh. "That's lit. I'm trying to get to where he's at."
