Todd Collins ended his career by surpassing Elvis Grbac's 62.5 career completion percentage record with a 64.3 percentage to establish the current record; tying Grbac's 23 150-yard game total, which was eclipsed by John Navarre in 2003; and surpassing Jim Harbaugh's 12 career 200-yard game total set in 1986 with 14, which was surpassed by Tom Brady in 1999.
