Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made his 100th career start this afternoon and in doing so, set a new NFL record for most passing yards through his first 100 starts.
Wouldn't have guessed: Tony Romo has 27,485 passing yards, the most in NFL history by a player in his first 100 career starts.

Prior to today’s game against the Bengals, Matthew Stafford had made 50 career starts and thrown for 14,579 yards. It’s easy math with exactly half the starts under his belt – Stafford is on pace to breaking Romo’s mark. In fact, 30,000 yards isn’t out of the question.
We should get used to Stafford setting passing records. He is now less than 1,000 yards away from passing Bobby Layne for the Detroit Lions franchise record for most passing yards in a career.
