Tom Brady’s two touchdown passes in Sunday’s 51-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars put the New England Patriots quarterback in rare air among NFL signal callers, as he eclipsed 400 career touchdown passes. Brady, who now has 401 career touchdown passes, became the fourth NFL player in history to reach 400 career touchdowns.
The ball Brady threw for his 400th career touchdown pass – a 1-yard strike to wide receiver Danny Amendola in the second quarter – is now on display at The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon.
