Stafford accomplished the milestone in just 147 games. The previous record holder, Matt Ryan, did it in 151 games.
While part of the reason for Stafford’s record-breaking performance lies with an increasingly pass-heavy NFL era, the Lions franchise quarterback deserves credit for longevity in his career and play strong enough to make the Detroit Lions relevant again after a horrible span in the early 2000s.
But for now, let Stafford have his moment to shine. It may have taken him more passing attempts to get there, but the Lions quarterback accomplished something only 20 other quarterbacks in NFL history have done.
