Tom Brady is Ready to Make History

Super Bowl LII is this Sunday and the New England Patriots are playing in it…again.  The Patriots and Tom Brady are defending their championship title against the Philadelphia Eagles.

These two teams have met in a previous Super Bowl. Back in 2005, the Patriots beat the Eagles 24-21.  This was Brady’s third Super Bowl title with the Patriots.

How Many Super Bowl Titles Does Tom Brady Have?

Brady has been to seven Super Bowls and won five.  Here’s a list of his record:

  • 2001 Season: Super Bowl 36- Won 20-17 against the St. Louis Rams
  • 2003 Season: Super Bowl 38- Won 32-29 against the Carolina Panthers
  • 2004 Season: Super Bowl 39- Won 24-21 against the Philadelphia Eagles
  • 2007 Season: Super Bowl 42- Lost 17-14 against the New York Giants
  • 2011 Season: Super Bowl 46- Lost 21-17 against the New York Giants
  • 2014 Season: Super Bowl 40- Won 28-24 against the Seattle Sea Hawks
  • 2016 Season: Super Bowl 51- Won 34-28 against the Atlanta Hawks (in overtime)

What a Sixth Super Bowl Win Will Do For Tom Brady?

His eighth game is on Sunday and this game makes it harder for any other quarterbacks to touch him.  The next closest quarterback to reaching Brady’s Super Bowl appearances is John Elway, who played in five and only won two titles.

A win will also break a 51-year quarterback curse: no quarterback has led the NFL in passing yards and won a Super Bowl in the same year.

Brady is sitting in second this postseason with 627 yards.  The leader, Drew Brees had 670 yards in these playoffs.  Brady averaged 288.1 yards each game this season.

A sixth Super Bowl win gives Brady the title of best quarterback in NFL history, if he hasn’t already claimed it.

Some fans are wondering if a win would make Brady retire. However, Brady made it very apparent he was not going anywhere after his sixth win.
