2015 was Tom Brady's 16th season with the New England Patriots, tying him for the most in franchise history. He had several milestone moments during the 2015 campaign:
- Brady passed Bruce Armstrong for most career games and starts in franchise history (currently 225 and 212).
- He set a career-high for completions in a season with 402.
- Brady threw for 4,770 yards in 2015, his eighth 4,000-yard passing season. Only Peyton Manning (14) and Drew Brees (10) have more career 4,000 -yard passing seasons.
- Brady's 36 passing touchdowns were the most in the league. Brady has led the league in passing touchdowns four times in his career (2002, 2007, 2010, 2015). He joins Peyton Manning as the only two quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 35 touchdowns in four different seasons.
- He threw his 400th regular season touchdown in a Week 3 match up vs. Jacksonville and finished the season with 428 career TD passes, tying him with Drew Brees for third all-time.
- Engineered his 48th and 49th career game-winning performances, to lead his team to a victory from a fourth-quarter deficit or tie (at NYG, vs. NYJ).
- Brady has 172 regular season wins with the Patriots, the most wins by a quarterback with one team. Brady passed Brett Favre after the season-opening win vs. Pittsburgh (9/10/15).
- Brady became the NFL's leader in postseason games played (31) and tied the record for most AFC Championship appearances, reaching his 10th championship game (Gene Upshaw and George Blanda).

Belichick on Brady: "There's no quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady. He's the best. He does so much for us in so many ways on so many different levels. I'm really fortunate that he's our quarterback and for what he's able to do for this team."
Brady in 2016: Fresh off a two-year contract extension, Brady could remain in New England through the 2019 season. Based on his performance the last two seasons, there's no reason to expect that won't be the case. Brady continues firing touchdown passes while leading one of the most potent offenses in football, and there's nothing to suggest that won't continue in 2016.
