Tom Brady quietly broke the all-time record for four-, three-TD games

NFL: OCT 31 Buccaneers at Saints

Sunday’s loss to the Saints carried a thin silver lining for Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

By throwing four touchdown passes in the 36-27 loss, he became the NFL’s all-time leader in games with four touchdown passes (38), and with three touchdown passes (98).

Brady’s performance broke the record held by former Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who had 37 and 97, respectively. Brady tied Brees in Week Seven’s win over the Bears.

In eight games this season, Brady has thrown at least four touchdown passes in five of them. He has only one game with none, the Week Four showdown against the Patriots.

Brady surely doesn’t care about any of that. He’s now 0-3 against the Saints in the regular season as a member of the Buccaneers, 1-3 including the playoffs. He’s 20-4 against everyone else.

That gives the Saints an edge in the Week 15 rematch, and in the potential third round in January. Last year, the Saints were controlling the game until the Tampa Bay defense turned it around.

  1. I don’t know who holds the record for throwing pick 6’s, but he’s gotta be up there.

  2. He who fights and runs away lives to fight another day…saints are broken, won’t make the playoffs…but the bucs will go deep

  3. What I want know is ,What fans have the 4 footballs…..and are they going to hold out for more than a signed Brady T-Shirt???

  4. Tom being Tom, I am sure he would have traded a victory last night over TD record… The loss was all Tom and he knows it… Hoping bye week will give the team the recharge as it did last year!!!

  5. Brady’s way more focused on his errors on Sunday than any career stat line. I don’t doubt he’ll work on fixing those errors, but his teammates need to get right on penalties. They gave the Saints so many extra chances, and I’d say that made at least as much of a difference in the game as Brady’s turnovers, maybe more so.

    He’s ranked a distant 19th in that all-time stat, so, no.
