Rattay's high school career began at Mesa High School in Mesa, Arizona. He did not take snaps as a sophomore or junior at Mesa High before transferring to Phoenix Christian when his father, Jim, became an assistant.
Because he was a backup, Rattay did not play until his senior year at Phoenix Christian, where he set a school record with 40 touchdown passes in 1994.
Rattay was not scouted by a major college, so he played a year at Scottsdale Community College, where he beat out five quarterbacks ahead of him on the depth chart to earn the starting spot the week of the season opener. He led the nation's junior-college quarterbacks in touchdown passes (28) and yardage (3,526).
Tim Rattay then transferred to Louisiana Tech, in Ruston. There he set several NCAA records, finishing his career with the NCAA Division I-A records for average passing yards per game, 386.2, and total offensive yards, 12,643. He was in the top 10 voting for the Heisman in 1998, which is awarded to the most outstanding college football player. In 1998, he broke school records as a senior with 4,943 yards and 46 touchdowns to finish with what was, at the time, third in NCAA history in single-season yardage.His 1998 season is, as of 2020, 19th all-time.

Tim Rattay entered the league as the seventh-round pick (212th overall) of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2000 NFL Draft.Rattay outperformed fellow rookie Giovanni Carmazzi, who'd been taken in the third round (65th overall, 147 spots ahead of Rattay), to earn a roster spot as a backup to starting quarterback Jeff Garcia. Starting in place of an injured Garcia, Rattay won 2 of 3 games in 2003, throwing 7 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions, before getting injured. When Garcia was released from the team in March 2004, largely due to salary cap constraints, Rattay was given the starting job. From 2004–2005 he went 2–11 playing for the 49ers.
On October 18, 2005, Rattay was acquired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 6th-round 2006 NFL Draft pick from the San Francisco 49ers.
Late in the 2006 season, Rattay stepped in as the starting quarterback for the Buccaneers due to the poor play of Bruce Gradkowski. In the week 15 game against the Chicago Bears, he entered the game with Tampa Bay losing 14–3. Due to his strong performance, Tampa Bay tied the game at 31, but they eventually lost in overtime 34–31. This performance led head coach Jon Gruden to name Rattay as the team's third different starting quarterback in the 2006 season.
On May 9, 2007, Rattay signed as a free agent with the Tennessee Titans. The following month Gruden would name Jeff Garcia Rattay's successor as the Buccaneers' starting quarterback.Rattay signed with Tennessee to be a backup before 2007's training camp. He made the team's 53 man roster, but was cut the next day.
On October 9, 2007, Rattay signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals as a backup to Kurt Warner, following a season-ending collarbone injury to starting quarterback Matt Leinart. Rattay would replace Warner in goal-line situations, where he went 3 for 3 with all 3 being touchdowns. Rattay declined to sign for another year, and decided to test the free agent market.
In September 2008, there were rumors that the New England Patriots considered signing Rattay after Tom Brady was lost for the entire 2008 season.In the 2000 NFL draft, the Patriots considered drafting Rattay but opted for Brady instead. The Patriots brought Rattay to Foxboro along with Chris Simms, but once they arrived, they were told that, since Matt Cassel had emerged, the situation had changed and Simms and Rattay were no longer needed in New England.
A month later, Rattay worked out with the Detroit Lions, but they never made an offer to him.
In July 2009, Rattay signed with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League. Head coach Jim Fassel said that Rattay would serve as the backup to J. P. Losman. On November 21, Rattay started for an injured Losman and led the Locomotives with two touchdown passes in a blowout win against the New York Sentinels.
On July 12, 2010 Rattay announced his retirement from professional football.
Following his retirement, Rattay joined the Locomotives coaching staff as wide receivers coach on July 18, 2011.
