In the United States National Football League, the highest official passer rating that a quarterback can achieve is 158.3, which is considered a perfect passer rating. As of the 2007 NFL season, forty-one "perfect games" have been thrown by thirty-four quarterbacks since the advent of passer ratings in 1973,[1] four of which have occurred in the post-season. Only four men have achieved the feat more than once: Peyton Manning has thrown four, Ben Roethlisberger has three, Dave Krieg and Kurt Warner have two. To qualify, a QB must attempt at least 10 passes. This is a list-in-progress of NFL perfect games:

No quarterback has posted a perfect passer rating for an entire season. Usually, season assessments require a certain number of passes before a player can be considered to have a perfect rating. For example, LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers threw one pass in 2003, scoring a touchdown, but his perfect passer rating for the year is not commonly included in the list of perfect ratings. Terry Bradshaw and Craig Morton had at least one game with a perfect passer rating and at least one game with a passer rating of zero, the lowest possible passer rating.
