Brady passes Marino for fourth on all-time NFL passing yards list

Tom Brady wasted no time carving up the Miami Dolphins during Sunday's match to pass Dan Marino for fourth on the NFL's all-time passing yards list.

New England Patriots quarterback Brady needed just 55 yards to pass Marino's total of 61,361, and he got all of it in the first quarter. Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Drew Brees are still ahead of him.

The four-time Super Bowl champion and two-time MVP threw for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter. One of his touchdowns was to newly-acquired wide receiver Michael Floyd, who fought through four defenders to find the end zone.

Despite starting the season with a four-game suspension, Brady entered week 17 already over 3,200 yards. His best year came in 2011 when he threw for 5,235 yards.
