The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium to wrap up an amazing 2021 season. Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has the chance to accomplish something only two other players have accomplished in 31 years.
Tom Brady leads the NFL in passing yards (4,990), passing attempts (682), completions (456), and touchdowns (40). Only Peyton Manning in 2013 and Drew Brees in 2008 have led the NFL in all four Categories since 1991.
Last week during the win over the New York Jets, Brady threw for 410 yards and three touchdowns, marking his 13th career game in which he passed for at least 410 yards, tying hall of fame great Dan Marino for the 3rd most 410 yards plus game in history. Only Drew Brees with 16 and Peyton Manning with 14 have more career games with 410 or more passing yards.
Tom Brady recorded 40 touchdown passes in 2020; and 50 touchdown passes in 2007; he has reached 40 this season, marking the third time in his career, and joins Aaron Rodgers as the only quarterback in history to record three seasons with at least 40 touchdowns. Additionally, Brady joins Drew Brees as the only quarterbacks in history with back-to-back seasons with at least 40 touchdown passes.
