Now at 9-3, Brady and his Patriots will head down to Miami on Sunday to take on the Dolphins, who currently sit in second place in the AFC East, three games behind the first-place Patriots.
On Instagram Monday, the Patriot quarterback said he could call it a career after reaching the milestone he most coveted.
"I think that's what's great about this offense", running back Rex Burkhead said after returning from an eight-game absence due to a neck injury.
In the Patriots 24-10 victory over the Vikings, Brady managed to snag enough yards to finally reach 1000 career rushing yards. "Hopefully, when your number is called, you step up".
Brady had spoken lightheartedly of late of chasing the 1,000-yard rushing mark, but he downplayed the moment after the game. It paid off immediately as they drove 81 yards in eight plays and 3:52 on their opening possession to take a 7-0 lead on Develin's first score. "So we'll watch the film and try to get better".
Brady threw his 508th regular-season touchdown pass - a 24-yard connection to Josh Gordon in the third quarter - tying him with Brett Favre for third all time.
Richardson said playing from behind all game was one reason. "I'm not going to save the ball".
