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

The New England Patriots quarterback also surpassed Dan Marino and moved into second on the all-time single-season list. Marino's record of 5,084 yards stood for 27 years before Drew Brees broke it last week.

Brady moved ahead of Marino on a 53-yard catch-and-run to BenJarvus Green-Ellis in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Brady hit the 5,000-yard milestone with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez in the second quarter.

Brees entered this week's games with 5,087 yards this season. Brady was at 4,897, and he had 219 yards in the third quarter.
