FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) - Tom Brady is the third quarterback in NFL history to surpass 5,000 yards passing in a season.

Brady hit the milestone with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. That gave him 107 for the day, and 5,004 for the year.

Miami’s Dan Marino set the record with 5,084 yards in 1984. That mark was broken last week by Drew Brees. The New Orleans Saints quarterback entered this week’s games with 5,087 yards this season.
