Brady ties Manning TD record, hits 1,000-yard rushing mark

Look, it's still a little early to tell, but we think Tom Brady, quarterback for the New England Patriots football team, might be a decent player someday.

The Patriots have unveiled a new Pro Shop exclusive t-shirt to commemorate Brady finally reaching 1,000 career rushing yards against the Vikings on Sunday.

Brady took a knee forward at the end of the game, just so he didn't lose another yard and fall below that 1,000 career rushing yards.

Running back James White topped the receiving table with seven receptions and 92 yards, Josh Gordon was unearthed in the second half and responded by catching all three passes to come his way for 58 yards and a TD, and fellow receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had receptions of 29 and 24 yards. And I don't want to make too much of a 4- or 5-yard gain.

The Patriots' 24-10 victory over the Vikings was, by and large, an uneventful affair - save for one tense moment on the sideline. But even if Develin's primary function in the game plan reverts to a blocking capacity, he said it's a role he embraces.

"HE DID IT" they crowed in post after after Brady, under pressure in the pocket on a third-down with three yards to go play, shot through an opening to pick up a first down. "That wasn't really a difference in the game". He joked in an Instagram video that the 1,000-yard milestone was the only thing that kept him playing.

As Brady got into his auto, he shut the trolling down and said there's still work to do.

It was Brady's 508th regular-season touchdown pass - tied for third on the career list with Brett Favre behind Manning's 539.

Clearly, Brady was keenly aware of how close he was to his first major rushing milestone.
