Tom Brady, one of the most un-athletic players in NFL history reached 1,000 career rushing yards Sunday and it too him only 19 seasons to do so.
After reaching the millennium mark during Sunday’s game against the Vikings, Brady faced one problem. Up 14 with one play remaining, a kneel down would result in a one-yard loss. (A sack or kneel down by the QB results in those yards being deducted from the rushing total of that QB).
Brady could be seen crawling under his centers legs as much as he could to down the ball at the original line of scrimmage to negate any loss of yardage.
Tom Brady was sitting on exactly 1000 career rushing yards. So he did a kneel forward to end the game. He’s still at 1000. pic.twitter.com/yIjUFczdwu

Brady’s celebration after reaching 1,000 was equality as funny.
19 seasons. 1,000 rush yards. Tom Brady knew it as soon as it happened.
