Tom Brady trolls Peyton Manning with hilarious Halloween photo

Tom Brady trolls Peyton Manning with hilarious Halloween photo

Tom Brady is on a roll this Halloween.

First, he showed off his Stormtrooper costume and topped it off with a timely injury report joke in his social media caption. Later on Thursday night, he took to Instagram to troll one of his longtime NFL rivals.

The Patriots quarterback posed next to a skeleton wearing a Peyton Manning jersey and wrote a caption that read, "Getting old Peyton!!"

Look below:

Boom, roasted.

Knowing how Manning operates, we can probably expect some sort of response. After all, Brady (42) is only one year younger than the legendary Colts and Broncos quarterback.

Patriots' Tom Brady passes Peyton Manning for 2nd place on NFL's career pass yards list

Patriots' Tom Brady passes Peyton Manning for 2nd place on NFL's career pass yards list

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is getting closer to owning another iconic NFL record.

The six-time Super Bowl champion moved ahead of former rival Peyton Manning on Thursday night for second place on the league's career passing yards leaderboard (regular season only).

Brady entered his team's Week 6 matchup against the New York Giants at Gillette Stadium with 71,923 career passing yards. He needed only 18 yards to eclipse Manning, and he picked it up in the first quarter on a 19-yard pass to running back Sony Michel. Brady passed Brett Favre for No. 3 on this list in last week's win over the Washington Redskins.

The Patriots quarterback still has a few thousand more yards to go before owning this record. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is No. 1 with 74,845 career passing yards. Brees has not played for the Saints since Week 2 because of an injury, but he is expected to return at some point this season. 

Brady isn't likely to break this passing yards record in 2019, but he could break the all-time passing touchdowns record. He came into Thursday's game needing 13 more touchdown passes to break Manning's mark of 539.

Patriots QB Tom Brady reminisces about 'incredible rivalry' with Peyton Manning

Patriots QB Tom Brady reminisces about 'incredible rivalry' with Peyton Manning

The rivalry between New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and former Indianapolis Colts (and Denver Broncos) quarterback Peyton Manning is one of the finest the NFL has ever known.

Brady and Manning arguably are the two greatest quarterbacks in league history, and they played against each other 17 times, including the playoffs, from 2001 through 2015. Brady emerged victorious in 11 of those games. 

Manning retired after winning Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos in 2015. He set many impressive records, including the career passing yards mark. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke that record last season, and Brady needs just 18 yards Thursday night to pass Manning and move into second place.

Does Brady miss his rivalry with Manning?

"I loved playing against him," Brady said Monday during his weekly radio appearance on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show." "I just knew that every time we played a Peyton Manning-led team, you would have to be so good because you knew he was going to be," Brady said.

"We had so many significant games over the years. It was an incredible rivalry. I think Peyton was one of the very best to play, obviously, that goes without saying. Any time you play those games, it feels different. Those games have kind of come and gone, which is pretty unique for me to see different players, and to see a different generation. I have a lot more perspective, I think, on the NFL now than 10 years ago. But yeah, I miss seeing him play. He was spectacular. He was the epitome of how to play quarterback in the NFL, and I learned a lot from him."

Brady is beginning to develop an awesome rivalry with Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

They met twice last season, including the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium. Brady and the Patriots won both games, and they could meet twice more before the 2019 campaign is over.

Whatever rivalry Brady creates with Mahomes probably won't ever be as impactful as the one he enjoyed with Manning, but it should make for an exciting end to the Patriots quarterback's career.
