With another signature fourth quarter touchdown drive to help the Patriots come back against the Jets, Tom Brady sealed the 200th win of his Hall of Fame career.
Brady, who was famously the 199th pick in the 2000 NFL draft, tied Peyton Manning for the most regular season and playoff wins in league history at 200. Since becoming the starter in New England in the 2001 season, Brady has gone 200-61, winning four Super Bowls.
Here’s a quick breakdown of some notable Brady stats during the course of his many wins:
6: The number of teams that Brady is undefeated against in his career. Against the Bears, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Falcons, Jaguars and Vikings, Brady is 26-0 (including two playoff wins against Jacksonville).
12: The number of quarterbacks the Bills have played against Tom Brady in Bills-Patriots games over his career. In that span, Brady has gone 26-3 against Buffalo, never losing to a Bills quarterback more than once. The full list:
- Rob Johnson
- Alex Van Pelt
- Drew Bledsoe
- Travis Brown
- J.P. Losman
- Kelly Holcomb
- Trent Edwards
- Ryan Fitzpatrick
- E.J. Manuel
- Thaddeus Lewis
- Kyle Orton
- Tyrod Taylor
13: The number of division titles that Brady has led the Patriots to since 2001. Prior to that, New England had won just five division titles in its franchise history.
50: The number of game-winning drives Brady has orchestrated in his career (including Sunday against the Jets). This total also includes Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX and XLIX.
63: The number of receivers Brady has thrown at least one touchdown pass to during his career. According to Pats Pulpit, only Vinny Testaverde exceeds this mark in NFL history (with 70). However Testaverde had an advantage, in that he played for seven different teams in his 21-year career. Brady has been a fixture in New England, no matter the supporting cast.
65: Brady’s win total against AFC East opponents. This includes a pair of wins against Peyton Manning’s Colts in 2001, during the last season in which Indianapolis was in the AFC East. And it also includes the playoffs, where his lone divisional victory came against Eric Mangini’s Jets (37-16) in January, 2007.
118: The number of wins Brady has totaled since turning 30 prior to the 2007 season. Ten of those wins have come in the postseason, including Super Bowl XLIX. His winning percentage in that span (0.771) is higher than it was in his twenties (0.759).
