Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady added to his lengthy NFL résumé on Sunday afternoon against the Carolina Panthers.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion broke the league’s single-season record for pass completions when he connected with Mike Evans in the third quarter at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The completion was Brady’s 472nd of the season, eclipsing the previous record set by Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints in 2016.

The feat took place in the Buccaneers’ 17th game of the season, whereas Brees set the previous mark in a 16-game schedule.

Brady already held many of the NFL’s career passing records, including total yardage, touchdown passes, attempts and completions.

Most pass completions in a single NFL season:

1. Tom Brady, (472), Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 2021
2. Drew Brees (471), New Orleans Saints, 2016
3. Drew Brees (468), New Orleans Saints, 2011
4. Drew Brees (456), New Orleans Saints, 2014
5. Ben Roethlisberger (452), Pittsburgh Steelers, 2018
