NFL 2017: Tom Brady is Tom Terrific
Tom Brady is Tom Terrific

Tom Brady keeps on impressing. He is one of only two players to win five Super Bowls and the only player to win them all playing for one team.

New England Pro Bowl quarterback Tom Brady guided the Patriots to a 34-28 OT victory against Atlanta in Super Bowl LI, engineering the largest comeback in Super Bowl history after overcoming a 25-point second-half deficit. Brady, who set Super Bowl single-game records in pass attempts (62), completions (43) and passing yards (466), became the first player in NFL history to win four Super Bowl MVP awards.

"Tom is able to put it all together better than any player that I've ever coached. Putting all that together at once in just a couple of seconds of time, he has to process it once he gets the calls and gets to the line of scrimmage. I think his preparation allows him to, in part, do that. He has the football instincts as well. He's a great role model for all of us -- any player and any coach. All of us." -- Patriots head coach Bill Belichick

A 12-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time NFL Most Valuable Player, Brady has led the Patriots to 14 division championships, the most by a starting quarterback in NFL history, including eight consecutive AFC East titles -- the longest streak of division titles in NFL history. His 208 all-time wins as a starting quarterback (including playoffs) are the most in NFL history.
