Another week, another milestone for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

With his two-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Julian Edelman against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Brady surpassed old foe Peyton Manning for most touchdown passes in NFL history. The 41-year-old wasted no time adding to his record total, connecting with Cordarrelle Patterson for a 34-yard score on the Patriots’ next drive, and again with Rob Gronkowski later in the first half.

Brady now sits atop the list with 582 touchdown passes and counting. He (511) still trails Manning (539) and Drew Brees (518) for most regular-season touchdown passes.

Against the New York Jets in Week 12, Brady also eclipsed Manning for most career passing yards in both the regular season and playoffs.
