Tom Brady becomes the fourth quarterback in NFL history to defeat every team in the league

Table of Contents

    After achieving one historic accomplishment in his return to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Patriots on Sunday night, Tom Brady added another line to his extensive resume.

    With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots, Brady joined Brett Favre, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning in NFL history as the only quarterbacks to beat all 32 teams.

    Brady also broke Brees' record for career passing yardage earlier in the night.

    Brady's victory marked his 116th in Foxborough, Massachusetts, but his first as a visitor after he won six Super Bowl titles in 20 years alongside Bill Belichick. He also furthered another all-time mark with his 233rd regular-season victory. 

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (12) calls out a play at the line of scrimmage during the second half of an NFL football game against the New England Patriots, Sunday, Oct. 3, 2021, in Foxborough, Mass.

    Save for the Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, Brady has defeated every NFL franchise at least twice in the regular season.
