Tom Brady has put himself in the record books in yet another category.

With a Week 13 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, the New England Patriots quarterback now has 201 career wins including the playoffs, passing Peyton Manning for the most all time, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Bleacher Report congratulated Brady on the accomplishment:

The 39-year-old was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, but he now has a 7-1 record upon returning. The future Hall of Famer has at least nine wins in every full season of his career, beginning in 2001.

"He should be the face of this league," receiver Julian Edelman said after the game, per Kevin Duffy of MassLive.com. "Couldn't happen to anyone better."

Brady and the Patriots have showcased remarkable consistency, winning at least 12 regular-season games in each of the last six years. With a 10-2 record in 2016, they appear to be on their way to continuing the streak.

Meanwhile, the quarterback has separated himself in the playoffs. Not only does he have four Super Bowl victories and six AFC titles, but he has also built a 22-9 career record in the postseason. Only twice has Brady reached the playoffs and not won a game, something Manning did nine times in his career.

Although Brady is a two-time MVP with 11 Pro Bowl selections, Denver Broncos general manager John Elway believes the latest record will mean more to him because it's a team accomplishment.

"If you're going to ever ask Tom what's the most important record that he will hold, my guess is he would say that having the most wins of any quarterback in the history of the league is going to be the most important," Elway said, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. "That's the mentality that he plays with and why he's been so successful."

Considering Brady is under contract through the 2019 season, he will have a lot more time to add to his record.
