Tom Brady reached this passing milestone in Patriots' loss to Steelers

Share

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady didn't play particularly well in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field, but he did reach an impressive passing milestone.

Brady became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 70,000 or more yards in the regular season.

He finished with 279 yards against the Steelers and has 3,700 through 14 games this season and 70,138 for his career.

Brady surpassed Peyton Manning for the most passing yards in league history -- regular season and playoffs combined -- earlier this season. The Patriots quarterback's 10,226 playoff passing yards are nearly 3,000 more than Manning in second place. 

Brady, barring an injury, is pretty much a lock to reach 4,000-plus passing yards for the seventh consecutive season in which he's played more than 12 games.
