Brady comments on NFL record

By Mike Reiss



ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady set the NFL record for consecutive passes without an interception. After Sunday's 34-3 win over the Bills, Brady has now thrown 319 passes without an interception.

His reaction?

"I'm glad I'm not throwing interceptions," he answered. "I think our team has done a really good job this year of not turning the ball over in general. All the guys that have handled it this year are doing a great job of taking care of it. I'm very fortunate. Believe me, I've had plenty of plays that definitely could have gone for them. It's a good trend for us to be on, and hopefully it continues."

Coach Bill Belichick was unaware that Brady had set the record, breaking Bernie Kosar's mark of 308 passes.

"That's great," he said. "Tom does a great job managing the game and taking care of the ball. I think he deserves that."
