Tom Brady set to become first player in NFL history to reach passing feat that once seemed impossible

Tom Brady has many NFL records: Super Bowl titles. Regular season wins, passing yards, passing touchdowns, and regular season starts are most notable on his Hall of Fame resume.

Now Brady is about to accomplish a feat that seemed impossible for any quarterback in NFL history. Brady is just 164 yards away from the 100,000 mark in his career (including the playoffs), which would make him the first player in league history to hit a six-figure passing yard mark.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9, and Brady is averaging 283.4 passing yards per game. Brady hasn’t thrown less than 190 yards a game this year, so the chances of him hitting 100,000 yards are very high.

If Brady hits the 100,000 yard mark, he’ll have 56.82 career miles. That’s 24 years with seven Super Bowl titles and no season worse than 9-7.

Brady didn’t have a typical Brady season when he completed 65.9% of his passes for 2,267 yards with nine touchdowns per interception (92.4 rating). The Buccaneers are 3-5 for the year, the worst start for Brady in his career.

The season didn’t go as Brady planned, but hitting the 100,000 yard mark is an incredible feat. The next active quarterback closest to 100,000 yards is Matt Ryan (64,415), but he was replaced by the Indianapolis Colts last week. Aaron Rodgers is next with 63,054 points.

For those who are wondering, Patrick Mahomes is in 87th with 24,531 passing yards.
