List of NFL quarterbacks who have passed for 400 or more yards in a game

In the National Football League, 123 quarterbacks have passed for at least 400 yards in a single game ("400-yard game"), 266 times in the regular season and 17 more in the postseason.

Dan Marino has recorded the most 400-yard games, with 15. The quarterback with the most 400-yard postseason games is Drew Brees, with 3 consecutive postseason performances, including 2 consecutive in a single postseason. Four rookies have thrown for 400 yards in a game, with Cam Newton the only one to have done so twice in a season, as well as the only one to do so in his first career start. Ken O'Brien is the only quarterback to have earned a perfect passer rating in a 400-yard game. Don Strock is the only quarterback to have thrown for 400 yards in a game that he did not start. Kurt Warner is the only quarterback to have thrown a 400 yard game in the Super Bowl. Warner has the three highest passing games in Super Bowl history.

There have been seven occurrences of a quarterback recording two consecutive 400-yard games in the regular season. There have been nine games where two quarterbacks collected 400 passing yards in the same game. There have been two single-days (September 21, 1986 and January 1, 2012) where three quarterbacks recorded 400-yard games – based on performances in 2 games. There has been one NFL 'week' (September 8–12, 2012) where four quarterbacks recorded 400-yard games – based on performances in 3 games.

More facts about 400-yard games

1943 was the first year a quarterback passed for at least 400 yards. In that season, only 40 regular-season games were played, plus one tiebreaker playoff game and the championship game. Since 2002, each NFL season has 267 games (including postseason play), giving 534 chances for a quarterback to try to achieve this milestone every year.

Of the 255 times a quarterback has earned 400 passing yards, only 54% have resulted in a win: 137 wins, 114 losses, 4 ties. The percentage of wins had been 60% (116 of 194 occurrences) prior to 2006, but has fallen to 34% (21 out of 61) since 2006. The number of 400-yard games has varied dramatically, from a high of 20 times in 2011 to just one in 2005, and none at all in some years (most recently 1979).

A quarterback with 400 yards has earned a passer rating of 100 or more 144 times, resulting in 100 wins and 1 tie; every quarterback whose rating has exceeded 131.2 (achieved 29 times) won that game. Only 12 times has a quarterback earned a rating of 140 or more: Peyton Manning did it twice, including the highest-rated game in the postseason (145.7), while Ken O'Brien and Nick Foles are the only quarterbacks to earn a perfect passer rating of 158.3 in their 400 yard games. Randall Cunningham has the two lowest-rated 400-yard games (50.5 and 52.0, both were losses).

500-yard games

Quarterbacks have thrown for at least 500 yards fifteen times; most recently, Tony Romo against the Denver Broncos in Week 5 of the 2013 NFL season (a game played on October 6, 2013, which the Cowboys lost).

Of the 500+ yard games, only Romo's performance ranks in the top ten in yards per attempt among games with 400 or more passing yards. The teams with the 500-yard passer have lost seven of the fifteen games. Y. A. Tittle (NY Giants) had perhaps the most prolific yardage and passing touchdown game in NFL history, when on October 28, 1962, he passed for 505 yards and 7 touchdowns against the Washington Redskins in a 49–34 victory. Boomer Esiason is the only left handed passer to have thrown for 500 yards. No player has ever passed for 500 yards more than once.

Quarterbacks with consecutive games of 400 or more yards

Only eight quarterbacks have, by NFL standards, had 400 or more passing yards in back-to-back games. Seven have done so in the regular season, and Drew Brees has done so in the postseason. Cam Newton accomplished this feat in his first two professional games, and Tom Brady also had 400-yard games in the same two weeks of the NFL season as Newton.

*Two quarterbacks, Kurt Warner and Brees, have thrown for 400 or more yards in their final post-season game of a season and then passed for 400 or more yards in the first game of the following regular season. Warner did so with the St. Louis Rams in his Super Bowl XXXIV win on January 30, 2000 and again in the Rams' Week 1 win on Sept. 4, 2000. Brees accomplished the same feat in the New Orleans Saints' loss in the Wild Card round of the 2010–11 NFC playoffs and the Saints' Week 1 loss in the 2011 Kickoff Game. Note that the NFL does not recognize these cases as "consecutive games". By contrast, Brees' 400-yard performances in the Wild Card and Divisional rounds of the 2011–12 playoffs do count as "consecutive", as they were accomplished in a single season.
