Patrick Mahomes remains a strong favorite in the NFL Passing Yards odds for 2022 after another big day in Week 14.
The Kansas City Chiefs QB threw for 352 yards in a 34-28 win over the Broncos in Denver, and thankfully the 3 interceptions he tossed will not impact his ability to lead this category at all.

Odds to lead the NFL in Passing Yards
Mahomes is a -500 favorite after Week 14, and he increased the gap to his nearest challenger – Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow. He could only put up 239 passing yards in a 23-10 win over the hated Cleveland Browns.
On +1000 along with Burrow is Justin Herbert of the Chargers. He produced probably the most impressive personal performance by a QB in Week 14, throwing for 367 yards in a crucial win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football.
Here is the latest line after the Week 14 games:
- -500 Patrick Mahomes
- +1000 Joe Burrow
- +1000 Justin Herbert
- +2000 Josh Allen
- +3000 Tom Brady
NB: Odds correct December 12, 2022

Who led the NFL in passing yards?
A look at the last 10 years and recent history shows how much offense through the air matters, and how often the marquee QBs head the way:
- 2021: Tom Brady – 5316
- 2020: Deshaun Watson – 4823
- 2019: Jameis Winston – 5109
- 2018: Ben Roethlisberger – 5129
- 2017: Tom Brady – 4577
- 2016: Drew Brees – 5208
- 2015: Drew Brees – 4870
- 2014: Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger – 4952
- 2013: Peyton Manning – 5477
- 2012: Drew Brees – 5177
The ageless Tom Brady led the way with 5316 passing yards despite a ton of injuries to his receivers. Stellar.
If by efficiency you mean pass completion percentage (we would), then the leader in 2021 was Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals with a terrific mark of 70.4 percent.
