Tom Brady made history in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ shellacking of the Chicago Bears by throwing his 600th touchdown pass. That wasn’t the only way the future Hall of Famer and present GOAT made history in the game, however.

This story of a man named Brady just keeps adding chapters. His story is essentially its own history book at this point. While Brady’s achievement of becoming the founding member of the 600 touchdown club got most of the recognition, Brady set another record just by stepping on the field, and it’s a record he will almost certainly beat again later on this season.

With Brady facing off against Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields in a trans-generational Ohio State-Michigan battle, the two quarterbacks had an age gap of 22 years. It was the largest age gap between starting quarterbacks in the NFL since 1950. The previous record was 21 years when the Bucs faced the New England Patriots and Mac Jones a couple of weeks ago. For those keeping score at home, the record before THAT was last year’s game between the Buccaneers and Los Angeles Chargers led by Justin Herbert. See a pattern here?

Well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Assuming Brady is playing week 17 and everything isn’t already locked up for the red-hot Bucs, Brady and New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will break the Brady-Fields record, should both quarterbacks be starting, especially with the recent injury to Wilson.

Simply said, Brady is incredible, and this record won’t even be sniffed.

That visual should be downright scary, especially when you take into account both great skill and great looks. Not only has Brady’s play been top-notch, but so has his handsomeness.

Surely there will be more records to come, and at this rate, maybe the win-total for a single season is in the Brady and the Buccaneer’s grasp the way they’re playing with the extended season.
