The career leaders in major statistical categories include a blend of Hall of Fame players as well as many of today’s NFL stars. Each Tuesday, thanks to Elias Sports Bureau, ProFootballHOF.com features the career leaders in four main statistical categories.


As of Nov. 25, 2014 (through Week 12)

WEEK 12 TOP 20 HIGHLIGHT:
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has his team sitting atop the AFC West after they defeated the Miami Dolphins 39-36 on Sunday.

Manning completed 28 of his 35 attempts for 257 yards and four touchdowns. He became the third player in NFL history to throw a touchdown pass in 50 consecutive games. The veteran QB needs to throw a touchdown in each of his next five games to surpass New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees for the most consecutive games with a touchdown pass.

The Broncos signal-caller increased his passer rating to 97.83 to rank second all-time.


Watch Manning throw a TD pass to Wes Welker
