Barring unforeseen circumstances, Tom Brady will set an all-time NFL record on Sunday evening, though he doesn’t want much fanfare. According to reports, the New England Patriots will only take a brief break from their game on Sunday night after Tom Brady sets the all-time passing record. He only needs 68 yards to pass Drew Brees for the top spot. Brady, on the other hand, does not want a big ceremony to commemorate the record-breaking. Instead, he reportedly requested that the Patriots only pause the game for a few seconds on Sunday night to honor the record before continuing.
According to @JayGlazer, it is Tom Brady that specifically asked the #Patriots to only make it a brief pause if he breaks the all-time passing yard record and not a big ceremony like Drew Brees had with the #Saints

Brady’s request is well-received by fans. “Tom Brady is a model of humility.”
“I’ve said it before,” one fan tweeted. Of course, blaming Brees for the Saints’ handling of the situation is unfair. “To be fair, unless the play resulted in a touchdown, there would have been no stoppage for Brees, and there were multiple plans for how to handle that.” Saints reporter Nick Underhill tweeted, “He just happened to break it on a touchdown.”
