Eli extends 200-yard streak to 24 games

On the same day that Saints quarterback Drew Brees could set the record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass at 48, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has extended his streak of consecutive games with 200 yards or more passing to 24.

It’s the second longest streak of 200-or-more-yard games in NFL history, a number that seems nearly as amazing as the fact that it took a quarterback so long to match the 52-year-old John Unitas record of 47 straight games with a touchdown reception.  With all the changes to the rules aimed at promoting passing offense, 200 yards passing for any elite quarterback should be a given.

The record, according to the production crew at Football Night in America, is 45 straight games, set by Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts.

    Hard to imagine Eli will catch Fouts. Even harder to imagine Marino, Brady, Eli’s brother, Warren Moon, etc.. ahven’t thron for 200 yards 24 games in a row. It’s a meaningless, manufactured stat but still an achievement.

    really makes you appreciate the consistancy of fouts doesnt it? that’s 3 straight years never having a sub-200 game.

    that being said grats to easy E and I hope he breaks the record :)
