Flacco Could Break 4,000 Passing Yards Record On Christmas Day

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — On Christmas Day, Ravens QB Joe Flacco could break Vinny Testaverde’s single-season record (4,177 yards) set in back 1996.

Flacco needs just 390 more yards to break the record. He has already reached career highs in attempts and completions.

Flacco has completed 374 of 579 passes for a current total of 3,788 yards and 19 touchdowns. He has had eight touchdown passes in his last three games, and Baltimore has won five of seven following a four-game skid.

Last week, Flacco sent a ball soaring to Steve Smith for a touchdown which allowed Smith to move further up the all-time receiving yards list, passing Marvin Harrison in the process to move up to seventh all-time.

With the Ravens edging closer to a Christmas Day showdown with Pittsburgh for first place in the AFC North, Flacco is staring down barrel of his first 4,000-yard passing season.

Interestingly enough, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs two TD passes to tie John Elway for ninth all-time (300). Roethlisberger is eight completions away from passing Testaverde for 10th all-time (3,787).
