Brady set the mark in the first quarter with a pass to Mike Evans. There was no special ceremony for the record-breaking event. The NBC broadcast showed Brees clapping for Brady, but there was no ceremonial handshake or tribute in the middle of the game. Brees expressed his support for the superstar quarterback on Instagram.

Brady now sits on the top of the list with 80,560. Brees finished his career with 80,358. Brady finished the game 22-for-43 with 269 passing yards.

The matchup on Sunday night between the Bucs and Patriots marked Brady’s return to New England after leaving for Tampa Bay last offseason. The future Hall of Fame quarterback spent 20 years in New England and won six Super Bowls with the franchise.
