    here is the play by play from NFL.com http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/playbyplay/NFL_20061119_BUF@HOU

    from his incompletion at 3:43 in the 2nd QTR till 5:44 in the 4th is a long string of passes but it isn't 22 in a row. I count it at 16 with 3 scrambles by Carr.

    seriously how do they get the 22 in a row record out of that??

    this is not a knock on Carr by the way, but what am I missing in the counting? How is this figured out, do scrambles count? Am I missing some pass or something, or do I just need to take my socks off and use my toes to count that high??

    anyone got an answer?

    what part of

    "PENALTY on HST-A.Johnson, Offensive Pass Interference, 10 yards, enforced at BUF 44 - No Play."

    you did not understand?

    what does this have to do with my question?

    and gp, from what time frame to what time frame? I have put this on another board and 3 different people count 16. Now granted it's been a few years since math class, but I am interested in 'seeing this' on the official stats. So any help on counting this would be much appreciated.

    An incompletion at 8:57 in the first quarter, followed by 22 completions, streak ending at 5:44 in the 4th.

    There is NO PLAY at 3:43 in the 2nd quarter. It was a penalty. This incompletion didn't count.

    Over here.
    I counted 25 in a row. :yikes:

    OK, I thought the incompletion at 5:44 was a completion.

    I get what you're saying though about the AJ pass interference, but that's the way it counts. It coulda been another dump-off anyway.
