Buccaneers star Tom Brady becomes NFL leader in all-time passing TDs

Tom Brady, Buccaneers

Tom Brady of the Buccaneers does not age. At this point it is the only logical explanation. On Sunday, he passed another milestone. With an incredible four-touchdown performance against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7, he became the all-time touchdown pass leader.

This is going to be kind of annoying to keep track of if we’re being honest. The reason for that? Well the man Tom Brady passed was Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, who is also still active.

Brees entered the day with 556 touchdown passes, compared to Tom Brady’s 555. The quarterback of the Saints threw two touchdowns in a win over the Carolina Panthers in an early game on Sunday. That put him at 558, three ahead of Tom Brady.

So what did Tom Brady do? Naturally he threw four touchdowns in a statement game. That now puts Brady at 559. For those that struggle at math, he’s now one touchdown ahead of Brees.

Expect these two to flip a few more times though. Brees or Tom Brady will have a bye week, big game, or struggle. That will lead to one or the other finding their way at the top for a bit.

Then again, if Brady keeps throwing the ball at the level he’s been at lately, he might hold on to it for a while.

Brady now has 18 touchdowns on the year. He has thrown at least one in every game this year and multiple touchdowns in five-of-seven games.

He already has three games with three-plus touchdown passes. That includes his four touchdown performance today and a five touchdown game earlier in the year.

Tom Brady has proven a lot of doubters wrong. He will continue doing so.
