Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady reached another historic passing milestone Sunday, and as a result he's closing in on another famous NFL record.

Brady went over 80,000 career passing yards during the second quarter of the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium.

Brady is the second quarterback ever to reach the 80,000 passing yards mark. The other is New Orleans Saints legend Drew Brees, whose 80,358 passing yards is the most all-time. 

Brady finished with 432 yards Sunday, which means he needs just 68 more to break the record next week against his former team, the New England Patriots.

Brady's much-anticipated return to Gillette Stadium will be the talk of the football world throughout the buildup to Week 4. It looks like the 44-year-old quarterback is poised to make history that night, too.
