Tom Brady's INT-free streak snapped at 358

There's a reason why Tom Brady was the MVP in 2010 -- he closed out the season on a white-hot streak that saw him avoid throwing an interception from October 17 against the Ravens until the end of the season. That streak, obviously, carried over into 2011 ... but it didn't last long as a deflected pass ended Brady's streak at 358 when the Dolphins intercepted him.

On the Patriots first drive of the second half in Miami, Brady went to throw a screen on the left side to Julian Edelman. The pass got deflected and Jared Odrick grabbed it out of the air and streaked -- well, as best a big man can anyway -- to the end zone, only to be stopped by Deion Branch just short of a defensive touchdown.

Brady's streak is remarkable in that it spanned many, many months, but also because it marked an incredible run by the Patriots as a whole -- they didn't turn the ball over a single time in the final seven games of the 2010 season.

Here's some good news, though: Brady's interception-free streak might have been shattered on Monday, but he also crossed some pretty solid milestones as well.

Brady became the 18th player in NFL history to throw for 35,000 yards on Monday night, and with his 35th career 300-yard passing night, he now has the 11th-most 300-plus games in NFL history. John Elway (36 games) and Drew Bledsoe (37) should see themselves leapfrogged soon.

The Patriots franchise quarterback also extended a touchdown streak, having thrown two scores in 10 consecutive games as of Monday night.

Writers need to clarify the interception streak.  It was a regular season streak...Jets picked him off in the Playoffs last season.

Great.  A golfer and a Tifosi commenting on Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.  Genius.  Next thing you know Joe Montana will jump out and tell us all how good his alky kid at Notre Dame, "Nate" is.

So Tom Brady is better than pain-in-the-neck Peyton Manning, Jughead's brother!


The Mannings have that little "interception" disease that Leonardo DiCaprio made the film about.
