Brady even broke a record just by entering the gridiron as he became the first player ever to make 300 career starts. Although his entering the field was merely a humble start, the records tumbled when he pulled off another 300-yard passing game.

This time it was the 100th of his career becoming the second player ever to do so. Trailing only behind Drew Brees who holds the record of 123, 300-yard passing games in his 20-year career with the Chargers and the Saints.

Tom Brady and competitiveness are synonymous. Anything can happen when he is on the field. During their season starter against Dallas Cowboys, the Bucs were trailing behind 29-28 with just 1:24 remaining in the clock.

Brady’s 62-yard drive led to a match-winning 36-yard field goal with just two seconds remaining. The veteran’s drive was the 49th of his career, third-most in the NFL history, following the footsteps of Drew Brees (53) and Peyton Manning (54).

The second one broke another record. That pass became their 86th (regular season) touchdown connection, surpassing Steve Young and Jerry Rice to the second spot in NFL history.

Brady’s form never seems to slow down. With age, he has become even more polished of a player. His 32 of 50 passes for 379 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions (97.0 rating) against the Dallas Cowboys is just a teaser for his season up ahead. Brady continues to deliver such numbers, such stats, that keep on shutting critiques time and time again to make a remark on his age.
