Tampa Tom, Tompa Brady, the GOAT, whatever you call this man, he has joined, no, has started a new club of which he is the lone member.
At home versus the Chicago Bears in Week 7, quarterback Tom Brady connected with wide receiver Mike Evans for his 600th regular-season touchdown pass. Brady joined a club that is limited in membership across multiple sports genres and sits singly as the only player in NFL history to accomplish this feat. The only active player, Aaron Rodgers, 161 touchdown passes away from reaching that staggering number. So it’s not even close. On Sunday, again in Raymond James Stadium, Tom Brady sets the NFL record, throwing his 700th career touchdown pass (this includes the postseason).
The GOAT, in all his GOAT-ness, doing GOAT things, set another record on Sunday for the most career completions in NFL history, surpassing the 7,142 completions Drew Brees accomplished with 7156 and climbing. The Royal GOAtness is eyeing another record that Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison set as the most touchdown pass/ receptions between a quarterback and receiver duo in NFL History. Gronk and Brady became second in NFL history with 90 and have quite a ways to go before snapping Manning and Harrison’s record. So that one isn’t likely to happen this season or maybe ever, but it could.
The Buccaneers continue their streak of perfection at home, having not lost a game since losing to the Chiefs in November of 2020, will look to build on that streak next week as the Saints come to town.
