The Brady Bunch - Tom's career in Opta numbers

Tom Brady achieved yet another notable career landmark on Sunday when he became the most successful quarterback in NFL history, winning his 201st game to move ahead of Peyton Manning.

The four-time Super Bowl winner, who has spent his entire NFL career with the New England Patriots, boasts some seriously impressive statistics.

With the help of Opta, we take a look at a number of his most impressive numbers.


7,957 - Brady has thrown for a NFL-record 7,957 passing yards in the postseason. Peyton Manning (7,339) is the only other quarterback with more than 5,900 postseason passing yards.

56 - Brady has also thrown 56 touchdowns in the playoffs, 11 more than Joe Montana, who sits in second place with 45.

335 - The 39-year-old holds the NFL record for most consecutive regular-season passes without an interception.

60,498 - Brady is closing in on Brett Favre's record for the most passing yards accumulated with one team. The Patriots QB's current tally of 60,498 yards puts him just 1,157 yards short of Favre's tally with the Green Bay Packers.

97.0 - A career passer rating of 97.0 puts Brady fourth on the all-time NFL list, behind Aaron Rodgers (103.5), Russell Wilson (100.3) and Tony Romo (97.1).

9 - Brady holds the record for the most game-winning drives (nine) and fourth-quarter comebacks (six) in a postseason career. He has led 38 fourth-quarter comebacks in all, the second-most in NFL history.

4,000 - He has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in five straight seasons, tied for the second-longest active streak in the league and the fourth-longest streak all-time.

259.6 - Brady is averaging 259.6 passing yards per game, which currently ranks as the seventh-most all-time among qualified quarterbacks. In addition, he owns a career interception percentage of 1.9 per cent, which is the fifth-lowest in NFL history among qualified quarterbacks.
