What Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is doing at age 38, coming off a season in which he won his fourth Super Bowl title, is nothing short of incredible.
There really are no words to do him justice right now, and that likely won't change.
Brady has been so good this year, he's on pace for the NFL's first ever 5,500-yard season. He's currently sitting at 1,387 yards through four games and has an average of 346.8 yards per game. If he keeps that up, he'd finish the season with 5,548 yards.
Peyton Manning owns the current record of 5,477 yards, which he set in 2013.
The fun with Brady doesn't stop there, though. He's also the only NFL quarterback to not have thrown an interception yet this season.
Per Jeff Howe of The Boston Herald:
Brady completed 20-of-27 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. The 38-year-old added a rushing score and he still hasn’t thrown an interception this season.
Michael Vick and Dan Orlovsky, the only two quarterbacks to see game action and not throw an interception, both did in Week 5. Orlovsky's came in his first action of the season in a blowout loss to Arizona, and Vick's came last night against San Diego.
What's truly surprising is that some of the better NFL quarterbacks have thrown more picks than touchdowns this season. Manning has thrown eight picks and seven touchdown passes, Matthew Stafford has thrown one less touchdown than Manning and just as many picks, and Andrew Luck has thrown five touchdown passes
Brady's going to get picked at some point, but it'll be interesting to see how much longer he can keep that up.
