Watching Aaron Rodgers carve up the 'Skins for a ridiculous 480 yards on Sunday afternoon had us reminiscing about another epic performance that perhaps may be the greatest passing day of all time. On December 16th, 1990, the Houston Oilers waltzed into Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City for a high-stakes AFC playoff race game against the Chiefs. On this day it was Warren Moon who delivered a legendary showing, throwing for 527 yards, which is tied for the second-highest game total in league history. In addition, Moon served up three touchdowns leading the Oilers to a 27-10 road victory over the Chiefs, who at the time were regarded as one the NFL's toughest defenses.
Even though Moon was in the midst of what was arguably his finest season (he led the league with 4,689 yards and 33 TD passes), his prodigious output was as unlikely as it was impressive. Kansas City allowed only one other 300-yard passer (John Elway) all season. #RESPECT
