Tom Brady joined an exclusive club when he threw his 400th career touchdown pass during the New England Patriots game against the Jaguars on Sunday. The quick, 3-yard strike to Danny Amendola in the second quarter put the Patriots ahead, 20-3, and caused the New England faithful to chant Brady’s name as he walked off the field and acknowledged the crowd.
Brady joined Peyton Manning (533), Brett Favre (508) and Dan Marino (420) as the only quarterbacks to throw 400 touchdown passes.
Brady added another touchdown pass against the Jaguars and left in the fourth quarter of a lopsided 51-17 victory. He finished 33 for 42 with 358 yards to go along with the two touchdowns.
The Patriots’ offense has clicked so far this season, leading the N.F.L. through two weeks with an average of 366 yards passing per game. In team offense, the Patriots trail only the Pittsburgh Steelers in total yards (434 yards per game) and the Arizona Cardinals in scoring (34 points per game).
