Buffalo 26, New England 33: Tom Brady passes Brett Favre’s record in win

Tom Brady made history on Sunday night in a dramatic and unlikely end to a long day of football as his New England Patriots edged the Buffalo Bills 33-27 in overtime.

Brady tied Brett Favre’s quarterback records with a 25th career game-winning drive and third in overtime, throwing to Rob Gronkowski for a six-yard touchdown to push the Patriots to a winning record for the 16th consecutive season and third-ever NFL overtime win (behind Dallas’ 13 from 1983-85 and New Orleans’ 17 from 2009-11).

The 43-year-old Brady now has 153 wins – tied with Favre for most all-time – while tying Peyton Manning with 14 when trying to tie his record for playoff wins. The Patriots quarterback still trails Peyton by a tiebreaker.

Buffalo had taken a 20-13 lead into the fourth quarter before New England closed within a point of the Bills on a 50-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. That set up Brady to kick his fourth game-winner and 489th touchdown pass of his career.
