Tom Brady breaks NFL postseason passing yards record
Monday January 19th, 2015

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady became the NFL's all-time leading passer in the postseason during Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Brady entered the game needing 10 yards to pass Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's record of 6,800 career postseason passing yards.

A five-yard pass from Brady to Julian Edelman in the first quarter eclipsed Manning's mark. 

Sunday's game is the 28th postseason game of Brady's career. He is the all-time NFL postseason wins leader for quarterbacks with 19.

Last week against the Baltimore Ravens, Brady passed Joe Montana for most touchdown passes in NFL playoff history with 46.
