Detroit Lions' Matthew Stafford fastest NFL QB to 30,000 passing yards


DETROIT – Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford added another milestone to his already impressive career.

Stafford became the fastest QB in NFL history to top 30,000 passing yards in the first quarter of Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. NBC also noted it took Stafford the fewest number of games to reached 30,000 passing yards in NFL history. He did it 109 games. Kurt Warner and Dan Marino did it 114 games.

Stafford needed just 44 yards to eclipse the mark. Along the way, Stafford also surpassed 4,000 passing yards for the season, the sixth-consecutive season he's topped that mark.

At 28 years old, Stafford is on path to shatter several NFL records, if he can stay healthy and the Lions keep building around his potent right arm.
