Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, 45, became the first player in NFL history to reach 100,000 career passing yards (including playoffs).In the NFL history he is followed by Drew Brees (with 85,724), Peyton Manning (79,279) and Brett Favre (77,693). Brady has now thrown for 56.82 miles in his career. He owns other NFL records too: Super Bowl titles. Regular-season wins, passing yards, passing touchdowns, and regular-season starts. He also turned in his 55th game-winning drive. Brady continued to write history in Sunday’s 16-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Brady has won seven Super Bowls.
The 45-year-old Brady’s career has long been the most successful in NFL history. “For me, it’s a credit to all the guys that I’ve played with, who have blocked for me, have caught passes. … I can’t do (anything) in this league without guys doing what they’re amazing at, too,” Brady said last Thursday. Father of three, he divorced his wife after 13 years of marriage. „We wish only the best for each other as we pursue new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written,” he said.
