When you think of the NFL and its all-time greats, there is little doubt that Tom Brady ranks near the top of the list. At 43 years old, he has been playing professional football for a long time, and he has had many teammates. There are few things that Brady has yet to do, and he can check off a unique box following the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers.

On Sunday. Brady was facing the son of a former teammate of his.

No, this wasn't some veteran teammate on his last leg when Brady entered the league. Brady faced Packers rookie offensive lineman Jon Runyan, whose father, Jon Runyan Sr., was teammates with Brady at the University of Michigan.

Brady is the oldest player in the NFL this season, assuming Adam Vinatieri does not sign with a team later in the year. He is getting to the point in his career where this will become more common. Brady has also been in the NFL nearly as long as some of his peers have been alive.

The veteran passer's NFL debut came on Nov. 23, 2000. The youngest player in the NFL, Miami Dolphins cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, was born on Nov. 27, 1999.
