Good morning and happy Friday everyone! Grab your coffee and let’s get your day started!
Fun Fact: We’re running out of words for Tom Brady’s career and there’s a good chance he becomes the first player to reach another milestone this weekend.
In his career (regular and postseason combined), he’s gained 101,188 yards, both passing and rushing combined. He’s at 99,836 passing yards and 1,252 rushing yards.
This Sunday, he needs to throw for just 164 yards to become the first quarterback in NFL history to reach 100,000 yards passing.
