Rivers tops Marino for fifth in all-time passing yards

Philip Rivers moved into fifth place on the NFL’s all-time passing yardage list on his first drive Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, Tenn.

Rivers, in his first season with the Colts after spending 16 years with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, began the night with 61,358 yards. He threw an 11-yard completion to rookie running back Jonathan Taylor on Indianapolis’ first play from scrimmage to surpass Dan Marino for fifth all-time.

Marino finished with 61,361 yards in 17 seasons, all with the Miami Dolphins.

The next two on the list are No. 4 Brett Favre (71,838 passing yards) and No. 3 Peyton Manning (71,940). The all-time leader, Drew Brees (79,536), and the second-place quarterback, Tom Brady (76,969), are still active.
