A quick note to let everyone know that we've added single-game leaders to the leaderboard index, including performances from 1940-1959. This means you can see exactly where Tom Brady's Week 1 performance stands all-time:

These records are relatively complete for the 1940-2011 period -- although we only have full box scores for games since 1960, we also have data on all 300+ yard passing & 100+ yard rushing/receiving games going back to 1940. For more in-depth searches on post-1960 records, you should use the Play Index Game Finder tool, but this option is good for quickly looking up single-game records over a greater span of seasons.
