BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- With 283 yards, Tom Brady became the NFL's career leader in total passing yards in yesterday's win over the Jets.

The Patriots' QB is up to 79,416 regular season and playoff yards, which vaulted him by Peyton Manning.

Brady's 41 and a future Hall of Famer. Seems like he's breaking records every week. So, he was asked if he's especially proud of any particular accomplishment.

"Wins, I mean that's what we're here for, to win games," Brady said. "I'm trying to be a part of as many of these as I can, and I love being out there with my teammates, and working hard at trying to figure out how to get the job done each week, and it's not easy, but I'm just here to win."

The five-time champ has tons of wins, and his Pats now sit 8-3--currently the second seed in the AFC and in possession of their 18th straight season with at least a .500 record. The Cowboys hold that record with 21.

Brady's also reached the 3,000 passing yard mark for the 16th year to even Manning and Drew Brees for second in NFL history. Brett Favre's first with 18.

Brady can set another record Sunday against the Vikings. He's thrown for 578 career touchdowns--just one behind Manning for the all-time lead.
