Matt Ryan has 46,720 career passing yards and eclipsed PEYTON MANNING (45,628) for the most passing yards by a player in his first 11 seasons in NFL history. He passed for at least 300 yards in 53 of his first 174 career games and joined Brees (57 games) as the only quarterbacks with at least 50 games of 300-or-more passing yards in their first 11 seasons.
With 3,409 passing yards this season, Ryan would surpass Manning (50,128) for the most passing yards by a player in his first 12 NFL seasons in league history.
During his 11-year career, Matt Ryan has averaged 4,247.3 passing yards per season, the highest mark by any quarterback in league annals (minimum four seasons played).
Entering the 2019 NFL regular season, Matt Ryan needs 3,280 passing yards to become the 10th player ever to reach 50,000 passing yards. If Matt Ryan accomplishes the feat in his first 15 games of the season, he would join DREW BREES (183 games) as the only quarterbacks to reach 50,000 passing yards in fewer than 190 career games.
Matt Ryan has 295 touchdown passes and can become the 12th player in NFL history to reach 300 career touchdown passes. With 34 touchdown passes in 2019, he can surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (328 touchdown passes) for the second-most by a player in his first 12 seasons.
