Over the course of his 22-year career, Tom Brady has broken a lot of NFL records, including the all-time pass completions mark he set on Sunday against the Bills, but there is one record that he’s still chasing and if he ends up breaking it, it will definitely be notable and that’s because it’s a record that Hall of Famer Peyton Manning considered unbreakable when he retired from football following the 2015 season.
The record we’re talking about is the most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo in NFL history. The record is currently held by Manning and Marvin Harrison, who connected for 114 touchdowns during their time together in Indianapolis. That total includes 112 scores in the regular season and two touchdowns in the postseason.
When Manning held his retirement press conference in March 2016, he was asked if he thought any of his records would stand the test of time and his record with Harrison was the only one he felt might be unbreakable.
“I think many records will be broken — most of my records will be broken — I don’t believe that record that me and Marvin have of throwing the most touchdowns together will ever be broken,” Manning said at the time.
After breaking dozens of records in his career, Brady is now within striking distance of breaking Manning’s unbreakable record and if he pulls it off, he’ll be doing it with none other than Rob Gronkowski.
