Tom Brady becomes third QB in history to throw 500 touchdown passes

Tom Brady’s 500th touchdown pass came on a great throw to Josh Gordon as the Patriots beat the Colts 38-24.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has added yet another accomplishment to his illustrious, surefire Hall of Fame career.

On Thursday, playing the Indianapolis Colts — a team he has historically owned throughout his 18-plus season career — Brady dropped in a 34-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon in the fourth quarter to become only the third quarterback in NFL history to throw 500 touchdowns in their career.

Brady needs only eight more passes for majors to tie Brett Favre on the all-time list, and is 39 back of Peyton Manning.

Joining the 500-TD club wasn’t the only record Brady set with that pass, however. He also set a couple more niche passing marks.

Despite being 41 years old, it would appear Brady shows no sign of slowing down, meaning his assault on the record book isn’t likely to end anytime soon, either.
