With his second-quarter throw to Danny Woodhead, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tied Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas for the second-longest streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass, with 47.

Brady's current mark is the longest active total in the NFL and is just seven behind the record set by Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who surpassed Unitas' long-standing record earlier this season.

It's a testament to the consistency of both Brady and the passing game in New England, and he continues to set numerous franchise and league records. The door is open to Brady breaking Brees' record, which could occur early in the 2013 regular season.
