Brady passes Bledsoe to become Pats' all-time leading passer

NEW ORLEANS -- Tom Brady has become the leading career passer for the New England Patriots.

Brady entered the game against the Saints on Monday night needing 163 yards passing to eclipse Drew Bledsoe's club record 29,657 yards, set from 1993 to 2001.

Brady, who took over as starter early in the 2001 season, surpassed Bledsoe's total with an 11-yard pass to Sam Aiken in the third quarter.
