    Brady's touchdown pass to Julian Edelman put him at 580 overall career touchdown passes, etching his name in history as the new leader in combined touchdown passes in the regular season and postseason.

    Brady had previously tied the record held by Peyton Manning when the Patriots beat the Vikings, as he reached 579 touchdown passes when he connected with Josh Gordon last week. The Patriots quarterback also reached another milestone in that game when he reached 1,000 career rushing yards.

    The record-breaking touchdown also threw Brady into second place in the record books for career regular-season touchdown passes, as he passed Brett Favre's number of 508. Manning is first on the list, with 539 career regular season touchdown passes.

    Now, Brady needs just 30 more touchdown passes in the regular season to tie Manning's record, with 31 putting him as the leader in every category when it comes to career touchdown passes.
