The ageless wonder does it again! His week 2 performance throwing 276 yards and 5 touchdowns won him his second consecutive FedEx Air Player of The Week award. 

Tom Brady leads the NFL with 9 passing touchdowns and is on pace to set multiple NFL records. Here are just a few. 

  • Career record for passing yards 
  • Career record for completions
  • Win a game vs. all 32 teams

He has already accomplished these extraordinary feats:

  • Has 35 career games with at least four touchdown passes, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING (35 games) for the second-most such games in NFL history. Only DREW BREES (37 games) has more.
  • Threw four touchdown passes on Kickoff Weekend, is the fifth quarterback in the Super Bowl era with at least nine touchdown passes in his team’s first two games of a season, joining PATRICK MAHOMES (10 touchdown passes in 2018), DREW BREES (nine in 2009), Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING (nine in 2013) and RUSSELL WILSON (nine in 2020).
  • Fifth quarterback in NFL history with at least four touchdown passes in each of his team’s first two games of a season, joining DREW BLEDSOE (1997), RYAN FITZPATRICK (2018), PATRICK MAHOMES (2018), and RUSSELL WILSON (2020).
  • Dating back to Week 16 of the 2020 season, Brady has thrown at least four touchdown passes in four consecutive regular-season games, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (four games in 1984) for the second-longest such streak in NFL history. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING (five consecutive games in 2004) has a longer such streak.
