Tom Brady Already Setting Records


New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is off to a record-breaking season with his league-leading 940 passing yards. Brady’s total is the most by a quarterback in the first two weeks of a season and he became the first player in NFL history to follow a 500-yard passing performance with a 400-yard game (517 yards in Week 1; 423 yards in Week 2).

With 282 passing yards this weekend against the Buffalo Bills, Brady can surpass Kurt Warner (1,221 in 2000) for the most passing yards in NFL history through a team’s first three games.

Shockingly (and we truly mean that) Carolina Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton has thrown for 854 yards this season and can also challenge Warner’s mark.
