Eli Manning climbing NFL's all-time passing list


Eli Manning surpassed Ben Roethlisberger in two categories on Monday night to move into seventh place in NFL history. With an eight-yard completion to Sterling Shepard late in the first quarter, he moved ahead of his Steelers counterpart (56,545) for seventh place on the all-time passing yards list. On his second score to Darius Slayton, Manning then jumped Roethlisberger (363) for the seventh-most touchdowns all-time.

Roethlisberger, who has been on injured reserve for most of the season, entered the NFL with Manning in 2004. Philip Rivers, another member of their famed draft class, is currently in sixth place in yards (58,404) and touchdowns (394). Entering Monday night, Manning led the trio with 4,860 completions, good for sixth all-time behind Hall of Famer Dan Marino.
