Most Passing Yards in an NFL Game :Dolphins vs Jets

A fact that some younger readers may not know. The most passing yards ever in an NFL game happened in a game with our very own New York Jets. The year was 1986, and the Jets were hosting the Miami Dolphins in week 2. Dan Marino and Jets QB Ken O’Brien engaged in a passing clinic, throwing for a combined total of 927 passing yards.

Also, as we announced on Twitter, in the coming weeks we will be having an interview with Wesley Walker, who caught four TDs in this game for the Jets. As such, I thought it might be fun to show the passing clinic put on from this game, for our younger readers who didn’t have the chance to see this, and for older readers, it will bring back some fun memories.

The Jets won the game 51-45 in OT. Watch this highlight tape, and you can see what passing offense really looks like. Enjoy

Just about as good as it gets, don’t you agree?
