By beating the New York Jets 24-17 earlier today, the New England Patriots have not only won improved their record to 4-2, secured the first place in the AFC East and have ended their 11th straight road game victoriously. One of the team's members has also been able to set yet another NFL record – and it was the usual suspect: Tom Brady.
New England's quarterback, who finished the game by going 20 of 38 for 257 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, has now won more regular season games than any other passer in NFL history. Entering the game in New York, Brady found himself in a three-player tie with Peyton Manning and Brett Favre. Prior to today's contest, all three men had won 186 regular season games.
The victory over the Jets now puts Brady at 187 as he secures his latest record. The one for total combined victories (regular and post season) already belonged to the future Hall of Famer entering today: Brady has now won a total of 212 games – 12 more than the next closest quarterback, Manning.
