Tom Brady Breaks Johnny Unitas Milestone


As if Ravens fans don't have enough reasons to dislike New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, here's another one.

He just passed Baltimore Colts legend Johnny Unitas on the all-time passing yards list.

Brady threw for 316 yards against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, leapfrogging the Hall of Famer's career mark of 40,239 passing yards. In his 13th season, Brady now has 40,531 career passing yards.

Brady ranks 13th all-time while Unitas falls to 14th.

The Patriots signal caller wasn't very efficient last week, completing 61 percent of his 46 passes. He threw one touchdown and one interception and finished with a 79.6 quarterback rating.

The week before against Tennessee, Brady completed 23 of 31 passes for 236 yards. He had two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Brady has a touchdown pass in 34 consecutive games, the fourth-longest streak in NFL history. It came down to the wire last week as he threw his only touchdown pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski with two minutes, 49 seconds left in the game.

Brady has a career regular-season 77.9 quarterback rating against the Ravens. That's the lowest quarterback rating he has against any NFL opponent other than Carolina. And he's played everyone at least once.

Brady has averaged 245 passing yards per game in his four regular-season meetings with the Ravens.
