Who Has The Longest Recorded Throw In NFL History?
Longest throw in NFL history in the air is 70.5 yards failed hail mary by Baker Mayfield in December 2020 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Unfortunately, the most impressive pass was incomplete as he overthrew the end zone, meaning his efforts didn't reward in a touchdown.
The Browns lost a close game to the Ravens, despite Mayfield's 343 yards and three scores through the air.
American football quarterback, Mayfield currently plays for Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was selected first overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft and played 3 seasons with them.
Before NFL, he played college football at the University of Oklahoma, where he was awarded the Heisman Trophy as a senior in 2017.
