At 39, Brady proving age is just a number at halfway point (The Associated Press)

Tom Brady has made no secret of his desire to play into his 40s. Since his return to the lineup Oct. 9, Brady has shown few signs of decline in his four starts. What’s more, with 198 victories, he will enter the second half of the regular season just three wins shy of passing Brett Favre (199) and Peyton Manning (200) to become the winningest quarterback in NFL history.
