The 44-year-old, already the league’s all-time chief in passing yards (81,479), related with Mike Evans with six seconds left within the first quarter for a nine-yard landing to achieve the landmark.
He completed the day with 4 touchdowns within the Bucs dominant 38-3 victory over the Bears, bringing his whole landing quantity to 602.
Nonetheless, as an alternative of letting Brady maintain the ball to mark that history-making second as is typical within the NFL, Evans unwittingly gave it to a fortunate close by fan.
It was Brady’s 97th recreation with three-plus landing passes and his thirty seventh recreation with 4 or extra, each of these marks tied with Drew Brees for tops in NFL historical past.

“And the NFL does a whole lot of nice issues, so it is simply good to — I all the time assume do the most effective that you are able to do, below any circumstance. It was good to see.”
