GREEN BAY, Wis. -- We've already noted that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joe Webb will become the first quarterback in NFL history to start a postseason game after not attempting a single pass all season.
Keith Hawkins of ESPN Stats & Information added some further context to this highly unusual situation.
Webb will be one of four quarterbacks in the Super Bowl era to start a playoff game without starting a regular-season game first. The others were:
The Buffalo Bills' Frank Reich in 1992.
The Detroit Lions' Gary Danielson in 1983.
The Dallas Cowboys' Roger Staubach in 1972.
Reich was the only quarterback to win a start. It was the Bills' famous comeback victory over the Houston Oilers.
