Tom Brady and the Top 20 Quarterbacks with the Most Passing Yards in Playoff History

Tom Brady - All-Time Postseason Passing Leader

Tom Brady, All-Time Postseason Passing Leader

Tom Brady broke the all-time postseason passing record tonight in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Tough door prize. Surely Brady (and Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots) would have rather had a trip to the Super Bowl.

He needed 227 yards to pass Brett Favre on the all-time list and finished with 320.

Here’s a look at the top 20 quarterbacks with the most passing yards in NFL playoff history.

Brady, Favre, Joe Montana and Peyton Manning are the only quarterbacks with more than 5,000 passing yards in their postseason careers.

John Elway just missed it.

Now, Tom Brady is set to become the only quarterback of the 6,000-yard playoff club, but he’ll have to wait until next year.
