An added bonus from Hekker was his prowess on trick plays. As Zuerlein’s holder, he threw a touchdown pass in the first Seattle game. He also completed two passes on fake punts Nov. 11 in San Francisco, helping the Rams earn a 24-24 overtime tie.
In the believe-it-or-not category, Hekker’s 42 yards passing on three completions in three attempts gave him more passing yards this season than Tim Tebow, who completed six of eight for 39 yards for the New York Jets.
“Oh man, I feel bad for Tim Tebow to be honest,” Hekker said.
Hekker had a 158.3 QB rating for the season. Tebow? 84.9 (a career high!)
