Patriots QB Tom Brady on verge of major career milestone

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - New England Patriots gunslinger Tom Brady is on the verge of a major career milestone heading into Thursday night’s tilt with the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium.

He currently sits at 497 touchdowns and has a great chance of reaching the milestone, especially considering the fact that he has thrown for 29 scores in 13 career games against the Colts.

Brady is coming off a three-score victory over the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.
