Tom Brady, who holds every significant quarterback record, broke two NFL records on Sunday in a brief appearance for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Atlanta Falcons.

With the Buccaneers already locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs, Brady played long enough to establish new standards for most completions (490) and attempts (733) in a regular season.

For the game, he completed 13 of 17 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown before giving way to Blaine Gabbert.

In his 23rd season, the 45-year-old Brady broke the record for completions (485) he set just last year. His 733 pass attempts surpassed the 727 mark established by Matthew Stafford with the Detroit Lions in 2012.
