Passing Big Plays are completed passes that go for 25 yards or more.

More about Player Passing Big Plays

Interestingly this is one of the few passing statistics that hasn’t changed substantially over the last few years.  In 2014 Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck led the league with 42 passing big plays apiece, which is the same number Eli Manning had when he led the league back in 2009.  While passing overall is up, this shows that passing plays that result in less yardage is what’s driving the increasing in passing offense over the last few years.  Having 40 or more passing big plays will put a quarterback near the top of the leaderboard in this category.
