Bradford set NFL rookie records for pass completions (354) and attempts (590), and he finished second in passing yards (3,512 yards), behind only Peyton Manning's 3,739 in 1998. Bradford's 18 touchdown passes tied Fran Tarkenton and Joe Namath for fifth all-time among rookies.
Bradford also set a rookie mark with 169 consecutive passes without an interception. He became the fourth rookie quarterback since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule in 1978 to take every snap.
Suh anchored a defensive line that might have been Detroit's best unit, overwhelming opposing blockers with his strength and athleticism. As a team, the Lions ranked sixth in the NFL with 44 sacks.
