Ryan now 16th on NFL’s all-time passing yards list

Matt Ryan jumped to 16th on the NFL’s all-time passing yards list this season.

With one regular-season game remaining, the Falcons quarterback has thrown for 41,479 yards in his 10-year career. Ryan has started all 157 of his career games.

Ryan has thrown for 3,778 yards this season and needs 222 yards in the finale against the Panthers to hit the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight year.

Ryan is in elite company. Ahead of Ryan on the all-time list are six Hall of Famers and he is among seven active players in the top 16. He has already passed several other Hall of Famers. The league’s top passer, Peyton Manning, will certainly be inducted into the Hall of Fame when eligible.
