With a three-yard pass to Saquon Barkley late in the first quarter, Daniel Jones broke Charlie Conerly’s franchise rookie record of 2,175 passing yards, which he set in 1948. Jones had already broken two of Conerly’s previous records – pass attempts and completions – earlier in the season.
One play later, Jones threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in a snow-covered end zone. Jones has now thrown for at least one score in 10 consecutive games, which broke another Conerly rookie record (nine).
Since the 1970 merger, Hall of Famer Kurt Warner holds the record for most consecutive starts (23) with a touchdown pass to start a career. He is followed by Baker Mayfield (17) and Brad Johnson (15). Jones had been part of a five-way tie for fourth place on the list.
