He is an ageless wonder. At 41-years-old, Tom Brady became the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for 500 career touchdown passes, joining Hall of Famers Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as the only other quarterbacks to accomplish the feat.

Brady threw for 341 yards to go along with three touchdowns and two picks in the Patriots 38-24 win over the Colts. One of the game’s biggest storylines was the return of Julian Edelman, whose coming off of a four-game suspension. Edelman made 7 catches for 57 yards. James White was the Patriots biggest offensive weapon with 10 receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown.

For the Colts, QB Andrew Luck threw for 365 yards adding three touchdowns and two interceptions. Tight end Eric Ebron led the way with 9 catches for 105 yards and two scores. The former first-round pick is getting more playing time thanks to the hip injury to pro-bowler Jack Doyle, who was out again last night.

The Patriots improved to 3-2 on the season and will face the Chiefs next Sunday night in the most anticipated matchup of the year. Kansas City is 4-0 thanks in large part to Patrick Mahomes who is leading the MVP conversation as the NFL season reaches the quarter pole. The Colts fall to 1-4, putting them at last place in the AFC South. The Colts look to get their season back on track next week against the Buffalo Bills.
