Look: Tom Brady Sets Another NFL Record on Thursday Night Football

Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady's name is already all over the NFL record books.

He set a new all-time mark during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

This record, he probably would rather not have.

Brady became the most-sacked quarterback in NFL history when Ravens' outside linebacker Justin Houston dropped him on consecutive snaps during the second quarter. 

"Tom Brady officially becomes the most sacked QB in the history of the NFL, with sack number 555."

The first sack tied Brady with Ben Roethlisberger, and the second, the 555th time Brady has been sacked, gave him the mark by himself.

It's worth noting that Brady is playing his 22nd NFL season, while Roethlisberger played 18. Brady actually has the 16th-lowest sack rate in NFL history, only being sacked on 4.55 percent of his dropbacks.

Brady has now been sacked 12 times this season. He was dropped behind the line of scrimmage 21 and 22 times during his first two seasons with Tampa Bay, respectively.

This probably isn't a record Brady will celebrate, but he holds enough others that he can get by with ignoring it. Brady already held the records for most career pass attempts, completions, yards, touchdowns and more.
