Brady sets two Super Bowl passing marks

INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Brady already has made history this evening.

On the Patriots’ touchdown drive to open the third quarter, Brady broke two Super Bowl passing marks, flying past some pretty big names in the process.

Midway through his fifth Super Bowl, Brady now is the all-time leader in career passing yards, breaking Kurt Warner‘s 1,156 yards (in three games with the Rams and Cardinals).

Brady’s 16 straight completions also made up the longest streak in Super Bowl history, surpassing Hall of Fame QB Joe Montana, who previously set the mark with 13 consecutive connections in the 49ers’ 55-10 win over the Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV.
