Tom Brady Almost Retires the Day After Finally Reaching His NFL Goal

Tom Brady Almost Retires the Day After Finally Reaching His NFL Goal

ESPN Stats & Information reckoned that heading into Sunday's game Brady had lost 160 rushing yards to kneel-downs since 2006.

"HE DID IT" they crowed in post after after Brady, under pressure in the pocket on a third-down with three yards to go play, shot through an opening to pick up a first down.

"Obviously, I'm not a scrambler". And I don't want to make too much of a 4- or 5-yard gain. "I made a good third down (play) on that one".

Brady took a knee forward at the end of the game, just so he didn't lose another yard and fall below that 1,000 career rushing yards.




"That's really important to us", he said sarcastically as his postgame news conference ended. He joked by saying this is what he wanted to do for a long time and now he can ride off into the sunset and retire.

A lot was said before, during and after Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and the Minnesota Vikings. "Nah, gotta get back to work".

Tom Brady entered Sunday's game against the Vikings with 995 rushing yards in his career and with a five-yard scamper in the first quarter found himself sitting at 1,000 yards on the dot. Including playoffs, that is 579 touchdowns for Brady, which ties him with Peyton Manning for most all time.
