Pats' Brady eclipses NFL yardage record for three-week span

NEW YORK -- Tom Brady has the most passing yards for any three-week span in NFL history.

The New England Patriots quarterback has thrown for 1,327 yards, surpassing the 1,257 that Drew Brees compiled in 2006 with the New Orleans Saints. Brady also topped Kurt Warner's 1,221 yards in 2000 that were the most for the first three weeks of a season.

Brady has thrown for 517, 423 and 387 yards as the Patriots have gone 2-1. He also has 11 touchdowns and five interceptions, four of which came in the 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.

At his current pace, Brady would throw for more than 50 TDs, the single-season record he set in 2007, and more than the 5,084 yards Dan Marino had in 1984.
