Tom Brady sets record for most touchdown passes in NFL history
Another week, another milestone for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
With his two-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Julian Edelman against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Brady surpassed old foe Peyton Manning for most touchdown passes in NFL history.
The 41-year-old wasted no time adding to his record total, connecting with Cordarrelle Patterson for a 34-yard score on the Patriots’ next drive. He later added a third touchdown, his 582nd, with a 16-yard pass to Rob Gronkowski with 3:39 left in the second quarter.
Brady (510) still trails Manning (539) and Drew Brees (518) for most regular-season touchdown passes.
Against the New York Jets in Week 12, Brady eclipsed Manning for most career passing yards in both the regular season and playoffs.
