Brady completed 33-of-49 passes for 269 yards and broke a tie for all-time wins with Peyton Manning as the New England Patriots manhandled the Los Angeles Rams 26-10.
Brady, who was playing on a sore knee, threw one touchdown pass for the Patriots who improved to 10-2 on the season.
He also collected his 179th regular-season win, leaving him one shy of Manning and Brett Favre (186 each) as the only quarterbacks with 180 victories.
His favourite targets Sunday were rookie Malcolm Mitchell and Julian Edelman, who caught eight passes apiece.
New England was playing their first game of the rest of the season without injured tight end Rob Gronkowski, who had season-ending surgery on Friday.
The Patriots held the Rams to 25 yards of offence in the first half -- the fewest number of yards ever allowed by New England in a half.
New England has now won seven of their last eight. They built a 17-0 lead and sent the struggling Rams to their third straight loss and the seventh loss in their last eight games.
