Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is the team’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns. Stafford set the mark in the third quarter against the Atlanta Falcons in London.
Stafford set the record with a 55-yard touchdown to Golden Tate to make it 21-10. With this touchdown, he set the mark with 119th touchdown pass.
The previous record holder was Bobby Layne, who threw 118 touchdowns in his Lions career. Layne needed nine years to set the record.
Stafford only needed six years to break the record, and it could put the record completely out of reach as the franchise quarterback.
With this record, Stafford now has every Lions offensive records. These include most passing yards in a career, most passing yards in a season, most passing yards in a game, most touchdown passes in a career, and most touchdown passes in a season.
Plus, he has the most touchdown passes in a game, most pass completions in a career, most pass completions in a season, most pass completions in a game, and highest passing rating in a career.
