Tom Brady made history during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 16-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams Sunday as he became the first player to pass 100,000 career passing yards in the NFL, including playoffs.

Driving the news: Brady needed 164 yards to reach the feat. The legendary Buccaneers quarterback surpassed the total in the fourth quarter of his 374th career game when the 45-year-old hit running back Leonard Fournette for a 15-yard gain.

What he's saying: "For me, it’s a credit to all the guys that I’ve played with, who have blocked for me, have caught passes," Brady said Thursday as the milestone loomed, per AP.

  • "I can't do [anything] in this league without guys doing what they're amazing at, too," the seven-time Super Bowl champion added.
