Tom Brady Earns 14th Pro Bowl Selection, Passes 70,000 Passing Yards

It’s been another record breaking week for New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady, and it’s still only Wednesday.

On Sunday, Tom Brady passed the 70,000-passing yard mark against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Then on Tuesday, Tom Brady tied an NFL record with his 14th Pro Bowl selection.

Brady surpassed the 70,000 passing yard milestone with an 8 yard pass to Rex Burkhead. The history-making play came in the third quarter of New England’s 17 – 10 loss to the Pittsburgh steelers.

Entering the game, Brady needed 141 passing yards to reach 70,000. He finished the game with 279 yards, a touchdown and an interception, taking his career total to 70,138 yards.

Only three other quarterbacks have more passing yards than 41 year old Tom Brady. They are Brett Favre (71,838), Peyton Manning (71,940), and Drew Brees (73,908).

Meanwhile on Tuesday, the veteran earned his 14th Pro Bowl Selection. Brady is now one of five players with as many as 14 Pro Bowl selections. In his elite company are Merlin Olsen, Bruce Matthews, Tony Gonzalez and Peyton Manning.

However, Brady was one of only two Patriots selected for the Pro Bowl. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore joins him for the game in Orlando, Florida on January 27.

In contrast to Tom Brady’s age, longevity, and enduring class, three players earned the first Pron Bowl selections this year.

Patrick Mahomes joins from the Kansas City Chiefs, and Saquon Barkley from the New York Giants and Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay were also selected.

No other team had as many players called up as the Los Angeles Chargers, with seven.

Chargers rookie safety Derwin James said ‘it feels amazing’ to be selected for the Pro Bowl.

“I set out goals for myself this year that I wanted to accomplish, and this is one of many.

“That’s special, to be able to know that you’re among the best in the league, because everyone doesn’t make the Pro Bowl. I’m happy as hell.”
