Through the first two weeks of the 2023 season, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa leads the league with 715 passing yards. Back in 2013, Peyton Manning passed for the most yards in a single season with 5,477 yards. As of right now, Tua is on pace to throw for 6,078 yards and that would shatter Manning’s record. It’s early in the season and anything can happen, such as Tua having a few bad games. But it would be so cool to see if Tua could contend for that single-season record.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
