New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees in Week 6 as one of the only quarterbacks in NFL history to reach the 5,000-completion mark.
Brady’s Patriots welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals to town in only his second game back from suspension.
After torching the Cleveland Browns the week prior, Brady took it to another AFC North team and along the way had a strong stretch with a bit of history to boot:

Brady had thrown for a trio of touchdowns by that point, his more than 300 yards against a strong Cincinnati defense a good example of the historic numbers he has posted throughout his career.
With guys like Peyton Manning gone, Brady continues to march ahead as one of the few remaining active quarterbacks who can help rewrite the record books.
On a warpath after serving a suspension, Brady might be just getting started on his march to history this season and beyond.
