How Many Times Did Tom Brady Get Sacked Last Night?
Tom Brady has broken several records in his career. For instance, he has the most passing yards, most catches and most Super Bowl wins in the NFL. But he has also been the most sacked quarterback. He holds the all-time sack record and has been sacked more times than anyone else in the league.
As for the most sacked NFL player, Tom Brady has been sacked 556 times in his 23 year career. While it’s not the most impressive statistic, it’s certainly a milestone. His previous all-time high of 524 was held by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The Patriots quarterback passed the mark last week after he was sacked three times during a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
In addition to his sacked record, Tom Brady also holds the title of most passes completed, most touchdowns scored, and most passing yards. The New England quarterback has a 3-5 record this season. And he hasn’t been sacked more than twice a game since he was with the Buccaneers during the 2020-2021 season.
Last Thursday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Baltimore Ravens. During the course of the game, Tom Brady was sacked three times, including two in the first half. This, in turn, set the stage for his record-setting night. However, the Ravens exploded for 14 unanswered points in the third quarter to take a five point lead. On the other hand, the Buccaneers stumbled to a 27-22 loss. Ultimately, the Ravens clinched the victory on a 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
One of the most remarkable statistics about Tom Brady is his longevity. He has been in the NFL for more than two decades, and he has had a chance to play on a team with great offensive lines, like the Patriots and Denver Broncos. Of course, his longevity isn’t limited to just the NFL. Earlier in his career, he played for the Denver Broncos from 1983 to 1998. When he retired, he had a sack record that lasted a good 12 years.
It’s been a long time since John Elway, who played for the Denver Broncos from 1977 to 1995, led the way for the sack record. Until last year, he had the best sack-wise record in the NFL. At the time, he was sacked 516 times in 234 games. With his retirement, his record had to be beaten by some other quarterback.
Another record that Tom Brady holds is the most sacks allowed in a single game. During the 2001-2002 season, he was sacked 40 times, which is not too far off from his current total. If he keeps up his current pace, he’ll end up with more than his fair share of sacks this season.
Tom Brady is a bit of a record-breaking machine. Despite his struggles this season, he’s remained competitive, which is what’s helped him rack up so many records. Among the top ten sack-wise players in the NFL are Drew Bledsoe, Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers. Those are the leaders on the list, but there are plenty of other sack-worthy figures to go around.
