The Sporting Birthday - Tom Brady
American Football: 5 time Super Bowl Winner Tom Brady is 40 today... and still playing.
Is Tom Brady the greatest NFL Quarterback of all time? It's a debate that has raged on since he picked up his fifth Super Bowl ring earlier this year.
Whether you think he is or isn't, his achievements speak for themselves and quite frankly, to still be performing at the highest level at 40 years old is amazing enough.
Some remarkable stats from the birthday boy...
- His combined 208 regular season and playoff wins is a the most by any NFL QB.
- Tom Brady has never lost to the Dallas Cowboys... or the Vikings, The Buccaneers, Falcons, Bears or Jaguars!
- His 7 Super Bowl appearances is the most by any player in NFL history.
- The Patriots victory in Super Bowl LI was the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.
- He holds the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place record for number of passes in Super Bowls.
