Tom Brady has become the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for 500 touchdowns in his career. Brady’s milestone came on a 34-yard strike to problem child Josh Gordon in Thursday night’s 38-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. It was Gordon’s first game as a Patriot after being acquired from Cleveland back on September 18th. The 41-year-old Brady had three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in the win.
Brady now trails only Peyton Manning (539) and Bret Favre (508) on the all-time list. Brady had owned the record from most touchdown passes thrown is a season (50) set in 2007 (the Randy Moss year) but was surpassed by Manning’s 55 TDs established in 2013. Drew Brees of the Saints come into the week with 496 career touchdowns and could join the “500” club on Monday night as New Orleans faces the Washington Redskins at home.
