Most completions 

Current record holder: Drew Brees (471 in 2016) 

Tom Brady enters Sunday's game with 456 completions through 16 games. Needing 16 more completions to break Brees' record

 

Most passing yards

Current record holder: Peyton Manning (5,477 in 2013)

Most attempts

Current record holder: Matthew Stafford (727 in 2012)

Brady's 682 attempts leaves him 46 attempts away



Most interceptions 

Current record holder: Night Train Lane (14 in 1952)

This one is very unlikely to be broken or tied. Lane set the record as a rookie in what was a 12-game regular season. Trevon Diggs of the Cowboys needs three interceptions to tie and four to break Lane's record
