Patriots' Tom Brady moves into 2nd place on NFL career passing TD leaderboard

Patriots' Tom Brady moves into 2nd place on NFL career passing TD leaderboard

FOXBORO, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is inching closer to another NFL record.

Brady threw a 25-yard touchdown to Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett in the first quarter of Sunday's Week 3 game against the New York Jets.

It was the 523rd career regular season touchdown pass for Brady, moving him ahead of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for second place on the all-time touchdown pass leaderboard (regular season only).

Here's the updated list:

1. Peyton Manning, 539
2. Tom Brady, 523
3. Drew Brees, 522
4. Brett Favre, 508
5. Dan Marino, 420

Brady already has the record for both playoff (73) and Super Bowl (18) touchdown passes. He'll likely pass Manning later this season to own the regular-season mark, too.

Brees also has a chance to pass Manning before retiring, but the 40-year-old QB is currently out for several weeks after suffering a hand injury in Week 2.

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

One month after requesting a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jalen Ramsey got his wish.

The star cornerback was traded to the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday for two first-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-rounder in 2021, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The news comes on the heels of the Rams trading veteran CB Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens and placing Aqib Talib on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ramsey's move to the NFC is great news for the Patriots, as New England won't have to worry about the two-time Pro Bowler helping out the Kansas City Chiefs' scuffling defense after they were rumored to be one of his suitors.
