Tom Brady first QB with 6K postseason passing yards
Tom Brady became the first quarterback with 6,000 postseason passing yards.
Counting stats can be misleading, but in order to count up yardage in the postseason you've got to make the playoffs.

He's looked sharp, including hitting one of the tighest windows you'll ever see, where he squeezed the ball between four different Colts defenders.

This is all very good news for the Pats, since they typically close out teams at home whenever they're up big.
Since 2001, Patriots are 80-0 at home when leading by 8+ points at any time in game. @cpriceNFL— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) January 12, 2014
Brady entered the game with 5,949 passing yards, so it wasn't going to take much for him to hit the milestone. What's impressive is that a) he hit the 6,000 mark in 25 games (that's an average of 240 passing yards per game) and b) that he's played in 25 postseason games. Regardless of playoff expansion, it's incredibly impressive for Brady to pull that off in "just" 12 years, especially when one of those years was lost to an ACL injury. He's an all timer.
