Brady is now win­ningest QB of all time


The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Kyle Hightower

foxbor­ough, mass.» Tom Brady now stands alone when it comes to career wins by an NFL quar­ter­back.

Brady be­came the league’s leader in vic­to­ries among QBs, earn­ing his 201st by throw­ing for 269 yards and a touch­down to lead the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots past the strug­gling Los An­ge­les Rams 26-10 on Sun­day.

Brady, who com­pleted 33-of-46 passes, tied Pey­ton Man­ning the pre­vi­ous week­end in a win over the New York Jets.

“It’s al­ways been about win­ning, and I’ve been very for­tu­nate to be on a lot of great teams,” Brady said of reach­ing the mile­stone. “I’m just re­ally grate­ful.”

His lone touch­down pass came on a 14yard pass to Chris Ho­gan in the first quar­ter. LeGar­rette Blount scored the game’s first touch­down, rum­bling for a 43-yard, an­kle-break­ing score in the first quar­ter while spin­ning around safety Mau­rice Alexan­der in the process. He fin­ished with 88 yards on 18 car­ries.

The Pa­tri­ots (10-2) have won seven of their last eight as they pre­pare for a tough stretch against three teams with win­ning records over their fi­nal four reg­u­lar-sea­son games.

On the same day that Los An­ge­les coach Jeff Fisher and gen­eral man­ager Les Snead were given con­tract ex­ten­sions, the re­cently re­lo­cated Rams (4-8) proved they still have a long way to go af­ter los­ing for the sev­enth time in eight out­ings.

The Rams en­tered the game ranked 31st in to­tal of­fense, av­er­ag­ing just 295 yards per game. Those strug­gles con­tin­ued Sun­day. They man­aged just 25 yards in the first half, the fewest by a team in a game this sea­son.

Los An­ge­les was out­gained 402-162 for the game.
