It didn’t take long for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady to make his mark with the Bucs. On their opening possession, the 43-year-old QB became the oldest quarterback in NFL history to score a touchdown.

First Brady connected deep with Chris Godwin on a post-corner route for a 29-yard gain, before setting up a 2-yard rushing touchdown off left guard Ali Marpet.

It was Brady’s 23rd career rushing touchdown, but his first-ever in a season opener. It was also just the second time he’s done so on the opening drive of a game, with the first time against Washington in 2007, according to ESPN Statistics & Information.
