During the Buccaneers-Ravens Thursday Night Football game, Tom Brady set a new NFL record.
Prior to the game, Brady only needed two more sacks to surpass the previous mark set by another quarterback in the NFL. Talk about adding a bad record to Brady’s impressive résumé.
With 554 sacks, former Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger previously held the record. In the first half, Brady took back-to-back sacks, bringing his career total to 555.
Funny enough, on Thursday night on his podcast Let’s Go! with Jim Gray, Brady mentioned the idea of breaking the record for most sacks.
Brady added, “I’d like to actually thank my complete lack of agility and speed for allowing me to knock on the door of this very esteemed NFL record”. “I have some other cool ones. This one I’m probably not as excited about. … Like we always say, some things get better with age, I think the feeling you get when you’re sacked is not one of those.”
The historical sack came from Ravens linebacker Justin Houston. He completed both sacks in the first half.
