Tom Brady Extends Home-Winning Streak To 25 Regular Season Games, Matching Brett Favre

Following the New England Patriots' 31-28 Week 11 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, Tom Brady mentioned that he wished he could have done more in the second half to put the game out of reach when Peyton Manning and the Colts made their inevitable, late-game rally.

Well, Brady was still outstanding, throwing for 186 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-25 passing. In the NFL, where style points mean nothing, all that matters is winning. And Tom Brady has done a whole lot of that, especially at home. In fact, following Sunday's win Brady has now won 25 consecutive games at Gillette Stadium, tying him with Brett Favre for the most consecutive regular-season home wins as a starting quarterback.

The most consecutive regular-season home games won as a starting quarterback:

Very impressive stuff. Brady will have to wait two weeks to try to break Favre's record, and the setting will be a big one. The New York Jets, who are also 8-2, head to Gillette Stadium on Dec. 6 for a Week 13 showdown with the Patriots. Until then, congratulations to Brady for the remarkable accomplishment.
