Matt Schaub went 39-for-52 for a whopping 460 passing yards against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, marking the third time in his career in which he threw for at least 450 yards in a single game. Despite Schaub's vintage performance, the Atlanta Falcons ultimately lost, 27-20, but the QB's Herculean passing effort did put him in elite company.

The 38-year-old signal-caller now finds himself in the NFL record books, joining current and future Hall of Famers Ben Roethlisberger, Dan Marino, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning as one of five quarterbacks in league history with at least three 450-plus-yard passing games.

The 460-yard performance not only made NFL history, but also set a franchise-best in completions for the Falcons. Schaub's 39 completions passed Matt Ryan's previous record of 37.

Matt Schaub Career Stats

Schaub has proven he can still throw the pigskin with more than 25,000 passing yards in his 15-year NFL career. He's totaled 25,412 total passing yards with 135 touchdowns and 91 interceptions to go along with a 89.4 career QB rating.

While it's unlikely that Schaub will see much, if any, playing time moving forward, it took him just one 2019 start to etch his name in the NFL record books.
