Brady first to reach 100,000 passing yards

Tom Brady became the first player in NFL history to rack up 100,000 career passing yards across the regular season and playoffs as Tampa Bay beat the Los Angeles Rams.

The Buccaneers' quarterback entered Sunday's home game standing at 99,836 total yards. He surpassed 100,000 on a fourth-quarter pass to running back Leonard Fournette, who went 15 yards on a third-down play.

"I think for me it's a credit to all the guys that I've played with, and who have blocked for me, who have caught passes," Brady said after the game.

Brady made sure the milestone happened in a winning effort. He engineered a 60-yard drive in 35 seconds with no timeouts and connected with rookie tight end Cade Otton on one-yard touchdown pass with nine seconds remaining to lift Tampa Bay over the Rams, 16-13.

That play gave Brady 280 passing yards for the game and 100,116 for his career.

It marked another NFL record - Brady's 55th career game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime, breaking a tie with Peyton Manning.

Brady already owns the career regular-season passing yards record, which he took from Drew Brees last season.

Brees is a distant second on the list for regular-season plus post-season yardage, at 85,724.

In Washington, Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes, Harrison Smith picked off Taylor Heinicke to set up the tying score and the Minnesota Vikings came back to beat the Washington Commanders 20-17 to extend their winning streak to six.

Playing his first game at Washington as a visitor on Sunday, Cousins rebounded from an interception at the end of the first half and popped back up after one of several big hits he absorbed to lead a 68-yard drive that ended with a field goal by Greg Joseph.

Smith's interception midway through the fourth quarter gave the Vikings the ball in the red zone. Cousins connected with Dalvin Cook on a 12-yard TD pass, which was one of his best throws of the game to finish 22 of 40 for 265 yards.

After an unnecessary roughness penalty on the initial field goal attempt allowed Minnesota to run more time off the clock, Joseph connected from 28 yards out with 12 seconds left to keep the streak going.

In Cincinnati, Joe Mixon rushed for 153 yards and scored five touchdowns as the Bengals built a 35-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 42-21 rout of the Carolina Panthers.

Mixon, who came into the game with three TDs all year, scored four times in the first half alone, the first three on short rushes and the fourth on a 12-yard pass from Joe Burrow, who finished 22 for 28 for 206 yards before taking a seat late in the third quarter.
