Brady passes Favre to go third in career passing yards during Patriots win


Tom Brady moved third on the NFL’s all-time passing yards list during the New England Patriots’ win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The legendary Brady surpassed Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre (71,838) and finished the day at 71,923.

Entering the match-up, Brady needed 264 yards to move up a place and he did just that in the third quarter with a 15-yard completion to receiver Julian Edelman.

Brady will pass Peyton Manning (71,940) for second in career yards in his next game, but he still has a way to go before he catches New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who tops the list with 74,845 yards entering the day.

New England left Washington with a 33-7 win, Brady finishing 28 of 42 for 348 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.
