Tom Brady jokes about retirement after reaching 1,000 rushing yards

06 December 2018

Not known for his scrambling ability, and often losing yards due to game-ending kneel-downs, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally reached a milestone he has joked about several times this season: 1,000 rushing yards.

Brady hit the career milestone with a five-yard run against the Vikings on Sunday to give him exactly 1,000 yards rushing in his career.

Now at 9-3, Brady and his Patriots will head down to Miami on Sunday to take on the Dolphins, who currently sit in second place in the AFC East, three games behind the first-place Patriots.

Five-time Super Bowl victor Brady connected with Josh Gordon for a 24-yard TD late in the third quarter of a 24-10 victory over Minnesota to tie Peyton Manning for the most touchdown passes in National Football League history, regular season and playoffs included.

"HE DID IT" they crowed in post after after Brady, under pressure in the pocket on a third-down with three yards to go play, shot through an opening to pick up a first down. And I don't want to make too much of a 4- or 5-yard gain. "I made a good third down (play) on that one".

Noted clydesdale Brady reached the long-awaited 1,000 rushing yard mark in the first quarter against the Vikings on Sunday.

"That's really important to us", he said sarcastically as his postgame news conference ended. "That's it. I'm out". 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.

Of course, Brady knew that he had finally eclipsed the mark.
