No quarterback in NFL history has won as many football games as Tom Brady. The New England Patriots’ signal caller won the 201st game of his NFL career on Sunday afternoon as the team took down Los Angeles, 26-10. Those 201 wins were a combination of wins during the regular season and the postseason.

Brady came into Sunday’s game tied atop the all-time charts at 200 with Peyton Manning. Both dudes were one game ahead of Brett Favre, who was at 199. Manning and Favre still have more regular season victories than Brady, but the Patriots’ signal caller is within striking distance of the all-time regular season wins record – Manning and Favre each have 186 while Brady is at 179. Barring something unforeseen happening, he’ll likely own that record by the halfway point of next season.

After Brady got the record, the NFL released a video featuring short clips from each of his 200 wins.

Brady’s been able to stay healthy for most of his career – outside of his rookie year and the 2008 season where he tore his ACL, he’s started at least 14 games every year. That obviously won’t be the case in 2016 because of his Deflategate suspension, but Brady has still been a model of consistency ever since he took over under center for the Patriots since 2001. He will forever get compared to Manning because of the rivalry the two shared for years, but at least in terms of all-time wins, the Patriots’ signal caller will forever have the edge on his fellow future Hall of Famer.
