Buccaneers QB Brady appears in 300th game

Tom Brady became the 12th player in NFL history to appear in 300 regular-season games.

The 43-year-old Buccaneers quarterback reached the milestone Saturday against the Lions in Detroit.

Brady is only the fourth member of the 300 club who was not a kicker or punter, joining three Hall of Famers: quarterback George Blanda (340 games), wide receiver Jerry Rice (303) and quarterback Brett Favre (302).

The all-time record is 382 games by placekicker Morten Andersen from 1982-2007.

Brady also made team history with his 34th touchdown pass of the year on Saturday.

Brady played his first 285 regular-season games — plus 41 playoff games — with the New England Patriots from 2000-19, winning a record six Super Bowl titles in that span.
