Tom Brady was already the winningest quarterback in NFL history before Sunday night’s thrilling victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. But with the win, he hit yet another milestone in his legendary career that no other quarterback can boast.
Brady has now won 200 games.

Sunday night’s win at Gillette Stadium was claimed in large part because of Brady, to nobody’s surprise. He made a couple of incredibly important plays that led directly to No. 200.
The first was a go-ahead score with a bit more than five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Down by three points, Brady couldn’t find an open receiver and decided to run the ball in himself, sacrificing his body for the score.
Then, after Patrick Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill on an incredible 75-yard touchdown late in the fourth to tie the game up, Brady went to work once again. He marched New England down the field on a seven-play drive that took over three minutes off the clock.
The big play was a perfect pass down the right sideline to Rob Gronkowski, which got the Patriots into field-goal range. With time expiring, Stephen Gostkowski nailed the 28-yard attempt through the uprights for a three-point victory.
All told, Brady completed 24-of-35 passes for 340 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions, and of course ran in a touchdown as well.
