Tom Brady gives funny take on reaching 1,000 career rushing yards


Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally passed 1,000 career rushing yards in New England's 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, but he wasn't in a celebratory mood about it after the game. 

Brady instead gave a funny response to a question about his milestone, then provided a reminder of what was the most important outcome from the Week 13 matchup at Gillette Stadium. 

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had a sarcastic response to Brady's accomplishment.

Brady got the yardage needed on a first-down run in the first quarter. It took him 265 games to reach the 1000-yard mark -- the most for any QB in NFL history. The milestone provided some funny reaction on social media, too, as former teammates weighed in. 

The Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins in south Florida in Week 14. New England won the previous meeting 38-7 in Week 4, but Brady didn't lose any rushing yards by kneeling in the fourth quarter. Backup quarterback Brian Hoyer did.
