It is the second time in his career Brady surpassed a once-fabled Marino mark, becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to throw 50 touchdown passes in a season, doing it in 2007. Marino smashed the then-record of 36 with a whopping 48 in 1984.
Brady’s record for TD passes in a season has since gone down to Peyton Manning, who threw 55 in 2013. And it is Manning who also holds the record for career passing touchdowns with 539. Brett Favre, the first person to pass Marino’s career mark, sits second with 508.
