Tom Brady Becomes Oldest Player To Rush For 1,000 Yards

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- It took New England quarterback Tom Brady 265 regular season games to rush for 1,000 yards, making the 41-year-old quarterback the oldest player in the NFL to ever reach the milestone.

With only an average of 3.8 rushing yards per game, Brady didn't make much of the achievement. "I just give a lot of credit to the offensive line, they blocked their tails off today against a good front," he said. "I don't want to make too much of a 4 or 5 yard gain. That wasn't really the difference in the game."

Patriots coach Bill Belichick wasn't too interested in one player's inconsequential personal milestone, either. "Yeah, that's really important to us," the notoriously gruff coach said. "It's great."
