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

The Vikings didn't sack Brady once Sunday, just the second game this season they haven't gotten to a quarterback.

In the Patriots 24-10 victory over the Vikings, Brady managed to snag enough yards to finally reach 1000 career rushing yards.

Brady's run came on a third-and-3 play, and he slid at the end of it before signaling first down from the ground. "And obviously, I'm not a scrambler". Hopefully I can make a couple of plays running for it.

Richardson said playing from behind all game was one reason.

Their next post, however, noted that the previous high for games needed for a quarterback to reach 1,000 rushing yards was the 161 of former Giants great Y.A. Tittle - who in fact finished his career with just 999.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, like Brady, had little interest in noting the milestone.

"Yeah, that's really important to us", Belichick deadpanned. Time to ride off into the sunset. Nah.

As Brady got into his auto, he shut the trolling down and said there's still work to do. Quarterback Tom Brady found Gordon wide open in the middle of the field and the athletic receiver easily took it to the house for a 24-yard score.

Clearly, Brady was keenly aware of how close he was to his first major rushing milestone.

Meanwhile, in the third quarter on Sunday, Brady threw his 579th touchdown pass (regular season and playoffs) to tie Peyton Manning for tops all-time.
