When it comes to the NFL, only a few can achieve what Tom Brady has done in his career. Especially considering the records he has been breaking in recent years, at his age, are unbelievable. A quarterback like this is a once-in-a-lifetime athlete.
This time the future Hall of Famer has become NFL’s all-time completions leader. The New Orleans Saints Legend Drew Brees previously held the record. In the game against the Buffalo Bills last night, Brady only needed 18 completions to surpass Brees.
Brees has a career total of 7,142 completed passes. When he retired earlier this year, the record was impressive, but everybody knew it was only a matter of time before Tom Brady broke it. With 378 passes completed this season, we predicted that the record will have Brady’s name on it soon. Terrific Tom has made a career out of defying the odds and setting records. With 1:38 to go in the first half, Brady threw a pass towards the Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans. It was a 20-yard strike. And Tom Brady has done it. It was the 7,143rd completed pass of his career. Just two plays later Brady scored and gave Tampa Bay a 24-3 lead.
Passing completion is just one of many other mosts for Brady in the NFL archives. Throughout his career, Tom has had the most regular-season wins (239). Most passing yards (83,186). He has also made the most touchdown passes (617). These numbers will keep increasing every week because Tom Brady is not done yet. If just breaking a record wasn’t enough, Brady also made his 700th touchdown pass of his career. He has made 617 TD passes in the regular season and 83 in the postseason. Brady threw his 700th touchdown to give the Buccaneers a 33-27 win last night. The Bucs are leading the NFC South division with a record of 10-3. They are on a comfortable four-win lead. The defending Super Bowl champions are the strongest contender to win it again this season. Along with his team at 44, Tom Brady is the strongest contender to win the MVP award this year.
