Have a day, Tom Brady.

The quarterback completed 22 of 27 passes and four touchdowns in the Buccaneers’ 47-7 win over the Detroit Lions, helping Tampa Bay clinch its first playoff berth since 2007.

The 43-year-old’s 348 passing yards marked the most in a single half in his career, per ESPN. Blaine Gabbert replaced Brady in the second half.

Brady collected his 33rd touchdown pass of the season on the Bucs’ opening drive, tying Jameis Winston’s 2019 record in the process. He threw for another three touchdowns in the first half to set a new team record with one game left on Tampa’s regular-season schedule.

Its safe to say Brady still has got a lot left in the tank.
