Ryan became the 10th quarterback in NFL history to surpass 50,000 career passing yards in the team's blowout victory against the Panthers. He needed 34 yards entering the game to reach the mark.
The veteran signal-caller reached 50,000 yards with a 14-yard completion to receiver Russell Gage in the first quarter. He earned the accomplishment in his 186th career game.
"Obviously, very proud of that, of going over 50,000 career passing yards," Ryan said. "I've been fortunate on a day where we honor Roddy White. It was cool to have him back because he was such a huge part of my career.
"I got out of the locker room just in time to kind of see the end of his [halftime] speech, which was great. And I'm so happy for him. But then to win the game, too, it makes the day all the better."
Ryan completed 20-of-34 passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns. He recorded the longest completion of his career with a 93-yard touchdown to undrafted rookie receiver Olamide Zaccheaus in the third quarter.
