Touchdown pass No. 599 went to wide receiver Chris Godwin with 4:40 remaining in the first. Moments later, Brady fired to Mike Evans for touchdown pass No. 600 – a 9-yard play.

It appeared Evans didn’t realize that his touchdown catch was Brady’s 600th of his career, and he handed the ball to a Bucs fan sitting in an end zone seat at Raymond James Stadium. The fan appeared elated.

Later, a Bucs crew member approached the fan and appeared to strike a deal to get the ball back. The man did give up the ball in exchange for some signed memorabilia. The ball could be worth $500,000, according to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions.

Brady entered the game as the all-time leader in passing touchdowns and passing yardage. He had the lead over other greats Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.

As Brady reached 600, Rodgers still needed a few more seasons under his belt to even reach 500.
