Another week, another broken record for Tom Brady.

Over the course of his legendary 18+ years in the NFL, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has set numerous records. During today’s game against the Miami Dolphins, the 41-year old added another one — one of his most impressive to date: with a two-yard scoring pass to Julian Edelman in the second quarter, Brady became the league’s all-time leader in combined touchdown passes.

Entering the 2018 season, Brady ranked fourth in regular season touchdown passes (488). However, his playoff production is unrivaled as the he has thrown more scoring passes (71) during the playoffs — let alone won more games and titles — than any other player in league history. If you combined Brady’s regular and postseason numbers at the beginning of the year, he sat at 559 touchdowns. Since then, he added 21 more.

The latest of which has now given him the all-time lead when it comes to touchdown passes in a career. Brady’s 580 scoring passes are one more than those thrown by his long-time rival Peyton Manning. The fellow future Hall of Famer ended his career with a combined 579 touchdowns, a number Brady already reached last week against the Minnesota Vikings.
