Tom Brady became the fastest quarterback ever to win 100 games after the New England Patriots beat the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Brady didn’t have the best game by any measure, but he did manage the game well going 19–for-24 with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Brady became the fastest quarterback to win 100 games in the modern Super Bowl era. It took him just 131 games, eclipsing Joe Montana, who had held the mark at 139 games. Brady becomes the 22nd quarterback in league history to reach 100 wins.

Brady got plenty of help from the Patriots defense and special teams against the Dolphins. The defense blocked a punt and a field goal, which they returned for a touchdown. They also intercepted Chad Henne three times, taking one to the house. On special teams, Brandon Tate returned his second kickoff for a touchdown in just four weeks.

The Patriots move to 3-1 with the win and this divisional road victory could go a long ways.

Despite not needing to do much, this night still belongs to Tom Brady. Since entering the league, he has been nothing but spectacular. Who would have thought that the 199th draft pick of the 2000 draft would be the fastest ever to 100 wins? This man continues to impress and he’s currently having one of his best seasons yet, with the second highest completion percentage and and QB rating of his career.

Here’s an interesting fact from the Patriots Monday Night performance: The Patriots became the first team in NFL history to score a passing touchdown, rushing touchdown, kickoff return touchdown, interception return touchdown, and blocked field goal return touchdown in the same game.
