Here’s a list of NFL individual single-season records that could be broken or tied this season:
Passing yards gained
Peyton Manning is currently at 4,811, putting him a couple good games away from breaking Drew Brees’s record of 5,476, set in 2011.
Most touchdown passes
Peyton Manning has 47 so far this season. Tom Brady’s record is 50, set in 2007.
Most 400-yard passing games
Peyton Manning has three so far this season. Dan Marino’s record is four, set in 1984.
Most 300-yard passing games
Peyton Manning has 11 so far this season. Drew Brees’s record is 13, set in 2011.
Most games, four or more touchdown passes
Peyton Manning has already broken this record, with seven such games this season. The previous record was six, set by Dan Marino in 1984 and tied by Manning in 2004.
Highest passer rating
Nick Foles leads the league with a passer rating of 117.0, which puts him within striking distance of Aaron Rodgers’ NFL record of 122.5, set in 2011.
Most games, 200 or more yards receiving
Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery both have two so far this season. Charley Hennigan’s NFL record is three, set in 1961. (Hennigan played for the Houston Oilers of the AFL, but the NFL has incorporated all AFL records.)
Highest net average, punting
Johnny Hekker of the Rams is currently averaging 43.81 net yards per punt. Andy Lee’s NFL record is 43.99, set in 2011.
Most kicking points after touchdown
Broncos kicker Matt Prater is 67-for-67 this season. Stephen Gostkowski went 74-for-74 in 2007, setting the records for most extra points, most extra points attempted, and most extra points without a miss. Prater has a chance at all of those records.
Most field goals
Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is currently at 35 field goals this season. David Akers owns the record, with 44 in 2011. Ordinarily I’d say it’s unrealistic to think Tucker could kick 10 field goals in the next two weeks, but considering he kicked six on Monday night, anything is possible.
