On Thursday, September 8, 2022, the 103rd season of the National Football League will kick off. A season that will conclude on February 12, 2023 in Arizona with Super Bowl LVII. The 2021 season ended with the Los Angeles Rams defeating Cincinnati. Just in the last NFL season Tom Brady made another record his own: he surpassed Drew Bress as the player with the most passing yards. In today’s article we will go over these and other NFL data.
NFL All-Time Pass Yards Leaders
Who are the NFL players with the highest passing yards in their careers? Topping the list of players with the most passing yards is the aforementioned Tom Brady. The star in the NFL who played for 19 seasons for the New England Patriots, from 2000 to 2019, and has played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2020 to the present has made a total of 84,520 passing yards. Thanks to the passes caught in the last NFL season he came in first place surpassing the other NFL legend Drew Bress. In fact, Bress, who made a total of 80,358 passing yards and played from 2001 to 2005 for the San Diego and from 2006 to 2020 for the New Orleans Saints. In third place, detached by nearly 13,000 passing yards from leader Tom Brady is Peyton Manning. The player who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame made from 1998 to 2001 with the Indianapolis Colts and from 2012 to 2015 with the Denver Broncs something like 71,940 passing yards.
Next to Peyton Manning we find another player who has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame: Brett Favre. Favre, who played for four teams, from the Atlanfa Falcons in 1991 to the Green Bay packers via the New York Jets and ended his career with the Minnesota Vikigins in 2010, compiled a total of 71,838 passing yards. Next in fifth are Ben Roethlisberger and Filippo Fiumi with 64,088 and 63,440, respectively. Other players in the top ten positions then include historic NFL player Dan Marino, who in his career with the Miami Dolphins from 1983 to 1999 made 61,361 passing yards.
Among the players in the top ten positions those still active are the leader of this ranking, Tom Brady, and followed by Matt Ryan who is currently in the eighth position with 59.735 passing Yards and Aaron Rodgers with 55.360. In the new NFL season it will be interesting to see how these figures change.
How does the list of NFL players with the most Passing Yards change when considering only playoff games? Again, leading the list is Tom Brady. In fact, Brady is not only the absolute leader among players with the most Passing Yards but he is also the leader in Playoff games with 13,049 yards made during these matches. In second position, however, we find Peyton Manning with 7,339 and in third position Ben Roethlisberger with 5,972. The top positions then include Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre and Joe Montana who played his last season for the Kansas City Chiefs. Also in the top 10 of this particular ranking are Drew Bress, ranked second overall with 5,366 passing yards.
