New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady Surpasses 1,000 Rushing Yard in his career as a professional football player. In addition, this career milestone took place after Brady hit a 5 yard scramble during the first quarter of last Sundays game. Furthermore, the Patriots took the win 24-0 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Brady’s run took place during a third-and-3 play where he slid toward its finish before flagging a first down. According to football betting Stats and Information, Brady began Sunday having lost 160 surging yards to stoop downs since 2006.
During an interview, Brady said, “It’s just playing a lot of football, “And obviously, I’m not a scrambler”. He also added “Running for it, made a good third down on that one, and I just give a lot of credit to the offensive line. “
Tom Brady having fun with more than One Milestone
On Monday, Brady had fun with the milestone. This is because his Instagram video said his reason for playing 19 seasons was to get to the 1,000-yard mark. He also said, “That’s it. I’m out. Time to ride off into the sunset. … Nah. Got to get back to work”.
On the other hand, Bill Belichick coach for the Patriots did not show any interest in the milestone. However, he did say “That’s really important to us,” in a sarcastic manner during his postgame news conference.
The 1,000-yard rushing mark wasn’t the only milestone for Brady on Sunday according to sports news outlets.
Brady threw his 508th regular-season touchdown pass — a 24-yard connection to Josh Gordon in the third quarter. Thus, tying him with Brett Favre for third all time. Including playoffs, that is 579 touchdowns for Brady, which ties him with Peyton Manning for most all time.
Even sportsbook PPH did not take note of this milestone, they were happy with the results of the match.
