Tom Brady now has over a hundred thousand passing yards to his name- the biggest ever in the history of the NFL.
After passing Leonard Fournette for 15 yards during Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams, Brady became the first quarterback in NFL history with more than 100,000 yards thrown.
In his 374th career game (including playoffs), Brady passed for 100,000 yards, which was the most in his career. Brady, who has won seven Super Bowls, holds nearly every meaningful passing record in the NFL and has now added one more feat to his name.
In a matchup between the two former Super Bowl champions, the league’s career passing leader needed to gain 164 yards in order to achieve a level of accomplishment that nobody would have imagined when he joined the NFL back in 2000 as a sixth-round pick.

“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,” said Brady in an interview on Thursday. “They’re great achievements. But as much as people want to say: ‘Oh, this is what Tom Brady did.’ In my mind, this is what myself and all these other people that have contributed to my life have done as well.”
