Tom Brady is closing in on the NFL record for career passing yardage, and he's likely to break it when he returns to New England on Sunday Night Football in Week 4.

Brady currently has 79,859 career passing yards, meaning he needs exactly 500 yards to break the all-time record of 80,358 yards, held by Drew Brees.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is averaging 327.5 passing yards a game through two games this season.
