Superstar quarterback for the New England Patriots Tom Brady is now the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards, regular and postseason combined, on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018.
Brady is the fourth all-time leader in passing yards during the regular season behind Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Brett Favre.
According to the Bleacher Report, Brady is a “13-time Pro Bowler, five-time champion, and five-time MVP who holds a number of NFL records already:”
- 15 division titles
- Started 37 playoff games
- 27 playoff wins
- 71 playoff touchdown passes
- 10,226 playoff passing yards
- 8 Super Bowl appearances
- 5 Super Bowl wins
- 4-time Super Bowl MVP
- 18 Super Bowl touchdown passes
- 2,576 Super Bowl passing yards
- 201 regular season wins by a starting quarterback
- 79,280 most passing yards in regular season and playoffs
- 37 playoff games started
- 71 touchdowns thrown to different receivers
Brady will most assuredly continue to break NFL records before he retires. Additionally, the 41-year-old is interested in adding to his Super Bowl victories, and the New England Patriots remain a significant threat to win another title.
However, the team is not quite on the same level as the New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Rams this season. The Patriots have wins over two of the AFC’s top teams in the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans. A week 15 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers could be a significant contest for AFC playoff positioning.
Coming into Sunday, Brady is having another solid year. The Bleacher Report states that it is a vintage year with 2,748 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions while completing 65.2 percent of his passes. He threw for 180 yards and a score against the New York Jets in the first half on Sunday.
Brady cannot play forever, but while he remains active, no record is safe.
