Bill Belichick leaves Tom Brady in the game to kneel on the ball for record win No. 201. "Brady! Brady! Brady!" chant at Gillette Stadium.

With that victory over the Los Angeles Rams, Tom Brady has recorded his 201st career victory.
Yup, you read that right. Two-hundred and one career victories as a starting quarterback in the National Football League. You wanna know how many other people have done that? That’s right: zero.
Now I know what we’re going to hear from Brady.
He’s going to tell us he never imagined this, but that’s as far as he’ll go. Instead, he’ll concentrate on the team. He’s going to tell us how fortunate he’s been to play with great teammates, and how he’s looking forward to playing for years to come. He’s not going to brag. He never has, he never will. He’s just not that type of person.
Luckily though, I am.
The game of football is predicated on winning, and as of December 4th, 2016, no other quarterback has won as many games as Tom Brady. Sure, there are guys who have had better statistics. In fact, three guys: Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, and Drew Brees have all thrown for more touchdown passes, and yards than Brady. (Brady’s #4 on the TD list; #5 on the YDs list) But if you gave those guys the choice between keeping those stats or having won more games in their careers, I guarantee they pick wins every time. Because at the end of the day, you can go out there and throw for 550YD & 6TD but if you look up at that scoreboard and your team is on the losing end, how much do those numbers really matter? Exactly, they don’t. This game is about W’s, and Tom Brady’s got more of them than anyone else.
