BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Tom Brady is primed to beat Peyton Manning's record to have the second-highest total passing yards of any QB in NFL history.
It could happen in tonight's Patriots-Giants game.
Manning's record stands at 71,940 total passing yards over his 18-season career—second only to Drew Brees's 74,845 yards.
With 71,923 total passing yards in his 20-season career, Brady needs just 17 yards to tie and 18 yards to pass Manning.
