Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback, hits 1,000-yard rushing milestone

Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback, hits 1,000-yard rushing milestone

Brady took a knee forward at the end of the game, just so he didn't lose another yard and fall below that 1,000 career rushing yards.

The moment came during a key point of a Vikings drive in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. It's back to work for TB12.

The 41-year-old quarterback seemed to be pretty elated at surpassing 1,000 rushing yards for his career, and now that he's won five Super Bowls, maybe he's now accomplished enough.

Brady's game against the Minnesota Vikings wasn't an exceptional one, by his standards: 24 of 32 for 311 yards, one TD, one interception. "Hopefully, when your number is called, you step up".

Kris Box says although influenza activity remains at minimal levels, the virus can still cause illness and even death. Typical flu symptoms are upper respiratory infections and a high fever.

Of course, Brady knew that he had finally eclipsed the mark. The Patriots defense hasn't allowed a 300-yard passer since Week 7 and they haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 4. Penalties and a lack of success on third down - they started 5 of 6 and finished 2 of 8 - were the biggest culprits.

Brady threw his 508th regular-season touchdown pass - a 24-yard connection to Josh Gordon in the third quarter - tying him with Brett Favre for third all time. He's accomplished everything there is to do in football and he chose to retire after the career milestone... for a few seconds. "That wasn't really a difference in the game". "I'm not going to save the ball".

Just like the balance and diversity the Patriots once again displayed on offense.
