Tom Brady was hobbled, yet efficient as ever with the game on the line and time on the clock.
Playing with an ailing knee, Brady tied Peyton Manning for most wins by a quarterback in NFL history, getting his 200th by throwing a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell with 1:56 left, leading the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.
It was the 50th win for Brady after facing a fourth-quarter deficit or tie.
“The quarterback’s job is to win,” coach Bill Belichick said. “He’s won a lot. That’s good. I’m glad he’s our quarterback.”
Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led a solid drive by completing six passes. After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots (9-2) ahead.
“We didn’t play as well as we wanted to,” Brady said, “but we made the plays when we needed to.”
