If there are still trivia games in the future — doubtful since everybody now draws their iPhone to answer a lingering question faster than Donnie Wahlberg draws his gun in Blue Bloods — the name Danny Amendola may help you win. Because the Patriots wide receiver helped Tom Brady make history Sunday by catching a 1-yard touchdown pass. It was Brady’s 400 passing TD, making him only the fourth quarterback in NFL history to reach that number.
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints entered the weekend with 398 passing TDs, so he’ll soon join Brady in the elite five-man group that contains Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Brady. The answer to the Drew Brees trivia question, which will go into the books this week or next, will likely be receivers Sean Payton or Brandin Cook.
