In his second season in the NFL, quarterback Jake “the Snake” Plummer lead the Arizona Cardinals to a playoff upset over the Dallas Cowboys in the 1998 NFC Wild Card game. The win marked the franchise’s first postseason victory since 1947 and Plummer looked like he had a bright future in the NFL. But Plummer’s career in Arizona started to head south quickly. The following year he posted one of the worst seasons in recent NFL history, throwing just 9 touchdowns compared to a jaw-dropping 24 interceptions.
After leaving Arizona and signing with the Denver Broncos, Plummer started four more playoff games, going 1-3 and posting a stat line of 5 TDs, 6 INTs, and 3 fumbles. During his 10 years in the NFL he threw more interceptions than touchdowns in six seasons.
