New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady became the NFL’s all-time leader in career passing yards against the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon.
The 41-year-old Brady’s 4-yard pass to running back Sony Michel in the second quarter was the record setter.
Brady entered the game needing 147 yards to pass Manning for the all-time mark, which includes both regular season and postseason passing yards. Now immediately trailing him are Manning (79,279), Drew Brees (77,789), and Brett Favre (77,693).
He is fourth all-time in regular season passing yards, behind Brees (first), Manning and Favre.
