The second-year quarterback completed 21 of his 25 attempts for 333 yards and three touchdowns while under pressure on 51.6 percent of his dropbacks. Purdy completed nine of his 11 attempts for 124 yards and a 113.6 passer rating under pressure.

Since Week 8, Purdy is averaging 12.1 yards per attempt, far ahead of Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud, who has averaged 9.2 yards per attempt.
