Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady set the NFL record for the most passing touchdowns Sunday against the Panthers.

Brady tossed his 559th touchdown pass, and that’s officially the most in league history. The six-time Super Bowl champion finished the day with four touchdown passes during the win over Las Vegas. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Tom Brady is 43 years old, and he’s still out on the field letting it rip and setting records. It’s incredibly impressive.

Stop and think about the fact that the guy has won six Super Bowls, and now he holds the record for the most passing touchdowns in league history.

Brady doesn’t know what it means to lose.

Drew Brees is second in league history with 558, and there’s a chance the record switches between him and Brady a few more times this season.

At the end of the day, it’s probably going to come down to who plays longer. Whoever plays one more season than the other will probably end up with the record.

Right now, Brady holds it, and he should be proud as all hell. Throwing 559 career touchdown passes is absurd.
