- Tracking who leads the NFL in passing yards.
- Tua Tagovailoa leads after two weeks of the season.
After Tom Brady, who has NFL odds of +900 to win MVP, led the NFL in passing yards at age 44, plenty of talented quarterbacks can take the throne in 2022.
Whether Patrick Mahomes re-enters the chat or Josh Allen takes control of the league, there are multiple quarterbacks to watch in an exciting race to see who will be the NFL’s passing leader this year.

It’s extremely early in the NFL season with just two weeks of play completed, but it’s hard to say that anyone would have expected Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins to be the NFL’s passing leader at this point.
That can happen when you get down early and complete a big comeback, which is what the Dolphins did against the Ravens in their home opener. The Dolphins signal-caller threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns in the victory.
In addition to Tagovailoa, there aren’t a lot of expected names at the top of this list, but then again, it’s still very early.
Carson Wentz found a new home in Washington, and the recipe for him putting up numbers appears to be revolved around the team going down early. That could again transpire this week when the Washington Commanders take on the Philadelphia Eagles, so don’t be surprised if he’s still sitting in this position one week from now.
Rounding out the top 3 is a veteran quarterback heading in the opposite direction of his career.
Joe Flacco has a lot of weapons with the New York Jets, but he’s proving he can still sling the ball around, even if he needs a lot of pass attempts. If the Jets continue trailing and need him to pass a lot, you could argue he’d be in the race this year, but that won’t be the case because of youngster Zach Wilson’s eventual return at quarterback.
