Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady isn’t a stranger to creating NFL history. The 7-time Super Bowl champion surpassed Vinny Testaverde as the 3rd most TD pass throwing QB in franchise history. Brady added to his greatness by achieving the feat only 16 months after throwing his 1st TD as a Buccaneer.

Brady now only trails two other QBs to become the most TD pass-throwing QB in franchise history. Only Josh Freeman (80) and Jameis Winston (121) are now ahead of Brady in the Buccaneers’ all-time list.
