Tom Brady takes over top spot for NFL's all-time TD mark
Tom Brady has set the all-time mark for passing touchdowns in the NFL!
Brady set the mark in Sunday’s blowout win for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The one that broke the record was his fourth of the day and went to rookie receiver and former Minnesota Gopher Tyler Johnson.
It gives Brady 559 touchdowns all time:

Though Brady now holds the record, it isn’t quite time to etch his name into stone at the top of the all-time touchdowns list. Brady overtook the top spot from Drew Brees who entered Sunday’s competition with 556 touchdowns to his credit.
Brees was also hot Sunday, throwing two touchdowns and leading the New Orleans Saints to a win. That means Brees is just one behind Brady on the all-time list with 558 touchdowns.
Regardless of how fans feel about these two players, it is important to appreciate the type of history these men are contributing to on the field. It is rare to see two 40-plus quarterbacks in the same season, much less competing at a high level and trading records back-and-forth. It will be interesting to see who ends the season with the No. 1 spot.
