It was destined to happen – tonight, here.
Bucs quarterback Tom Brady became the NFL’s all-time career passer on Sunday night in New England against his former team. Brady’s 28-yard completion to wide receiver Mike Evans gave him 68 passing yards on the night through the first quarter, which tied Brees’ record with 80,359 yards.
Brady entered the game against his former team needing just 68 yards to surpass New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees. Brees threw for 80,358 yards in his 15 years with New Orleans (2006-20) and five years in San Diego (2001-05). Brady had thrown for 80,291 yards prior to kickoff. Working for NBC Sports, Brees was on site in New England working the game and was present for the record-breaking moment.
