Joe Flacco breaks Ravens single-season passing yards record

Congrats Joe!

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

After the incalculable amount of checkdown passes, QB Joe Flacco officially owns the Baltimore Ravens record for most passing yards in a single season.

The former record (4,177 yards), held by Vinny Testaverde, was set in the Ravens inaugural season.

After multiple seasons of 3,900 yards, and inching ever so closely to the cracking the 4,000 mark, Joe Flacco eclipsed the barrier in Week 16 of the 2016 season. Now, in Week 17, the franchise quarterback holds the franchise record, totaling 4,317 yards.
