Tom Brady just did something against the Detroit Lions no other QB has done
In case there was still any doubt that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was the G.O.A.T. he made history again on Saturday against the Detroit Lions.
It took the ex-Michigan quarterback only one half to throw 348 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the 22v27 pass in the Bucs' 47-7 win at Ford Field. That gave him a pass rating of 158.3 - a "perfect" score according to the NFL formula (accepted in 1973).
It's the seventh time since 1950 that a QB has scored a perfect score against the Lions (with at least 10 passes), but Brady is the first QB to do so twice against the Honolulu Blue and Silver. He was dominant for the Patriots 10 years ago too, with a 45-24 Thanksgiving Day blowout in 2010.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will face the Detroit Lions at Ford Field in the first half of Saturday, December 26, 2020.
He stayed in for all of that, but his numbers - 21 for 27, 341 yards, four TDs, 0 picks - look pretty much the same as on Saturday.
(Of course, he wasn't the only one to dominate the Lions on Saturday. The Bucs' 588 yards were the most allowed in a regular game in the history of the Lions franchise.)
The other five QBs with perfect passerby ratings against the Lions since 1950:
October 28, 2018: Seattle's Russell Wilson completed 14 of 17 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-14 win at Ford Field.
September 23, 2007: Donovan McNabb of Philadelphia completed 21 of 26 passes for 381 yards and four touchdowns in a 56:21 home win.
December 14, 2003: Kansas City's Trent Green completed 20 of 25 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-17 win at Arrowhead Stadium.

December 6, 1959: The M.C. Reynolds came off the bench at Briggs Stadium in Detroit to make eight out of ten passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions 45:21 win.
