Quarterbacks in the National Football League are often compared using a number derived by using a formula called passer rating. Higher numbers are widely considered to indicate higher quarterback proficiency. This rating ranges from 0 to 158.3. Quarterbacks are required to throw at least 1,500 passes before their rating is listed among NFL career statistics for the regular season, and 150 attempts for the postseason.
