Brady sets all-time NFL passing mark

Updated: 26-11-2018 03:16 IST

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 rookie running back Sony Michel in the second quarter was the record setter.

Brady threw for 283 yards against the Jets, making the record now 79,416 -- and climbing with each game he plays.

Brady entered the game needing 147 yards to pass Peyton 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.
