Tom Brady owns too many records to count. The former Patriot and current Buccaneer owns every meaningful record in the NFL. His illustrious twenty-three-year NFL career has produced seven Super Bowl Championships and ten Super Bowl appearances. He’s the all-time leader in passing yards, touchdowns, and completions.
This season has not been the best for Tom Terrific, though. While his statistics are good, the Bucs have underachieved. They came in to Monday’s game against the rival Saints at 5-6. Luckily, the NFC South isn’t very good, and they were still in the thick of the playoff picture.
But, The Bucs found themselves down 16-3 late in the game, and all seemed lost.
Trailing 16-3 with 5:34 remaining in the game, the Buccaneers had just a 0.7% chance of winning.

The Tampa defense got off the field, and Tom Terrific once again led a long drive. This time, it took 11 plays before he found Rachaad White for the game-winning touchdown with three seconds left.

And, it gave Brady another record.
Tom Brady has now completed his 44th come from behind win in the 4th quarter/OT.
That surpasses Peyton Manning for the most in NFL history.

Considering that he’s been ahead in so many games, 44 fourth-quarter comebacks is an incredible number. That’s one less record for him to break.
