This just in: the NFL has become a pass-happy league. And while that may not seem like breaking news, a closer look at early-season numbers tell the story. The first four weeks of the season featured the four highest single-week passing-yardage totals in NFL history, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
The highest single-week passing-yardage total belongs to Week 2 (7,946 passing yards), followed by Week 4 (7,886), Week 1 (7,842) and Week 3 (7,772).
