3 Epic Super Bowl MVP Performances from Patriots’ Tom Brady

The American football world might be seeing less of New England Patriots’ Tom Brady in the following years. This was after the 41-year-old superstar said in an interview that he is “not going to play another 10 years” to take care two of his children.

Who could blame Brady? After being considered as the best of his generation, if not of all time, Brady has nothing more to prove in the National Football League (NFL). In his 18-year career, he won three NFL MVP awards, and he was selected for the Pro Bowl 13 times.

He is also a five-time Super Bowl champion, tying the record set by Charles Haley in the late 20th century. Not only did Brady start in all five of Patriots’ wins, but he was also the star in the majority of those victories.

As father time approaches the storied player, relieve some of Brady’s MVP performance in American football’s greatest stage below.

Super Bowl XXXVI – The Start of a Dynasty

In only his first season as the starting quarterback—and his second professional year—Brady was already tasked to hand the Patriots their first-ever Vince Lombardi Trophy. The then-sophomore was up for the task.

The Patriots won the game against the St. Louis Rams 20-17, thanks to a 48-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri. However, it was Brady’s MVP-worthy performance that made that play possible. The quarterback led the Patriots’ winning drive, capping his night off with 16/27 passes completed for 145 yards and one touchdown.

Super Bowl XLIX – Cold-Blooded Setting of Records

A crucial interception at the dying seconds of the Super Bowl XLIX overshadowed Brady’s record-breaking performance as his Patriots won 28-24 against the Seattle Seahawks.

The game’s MVP—his third in his career—posted a then-record of 37 completed passes for a total gain of 328 yards and four touchdowns. He became the quarterback and player who started the most Super Bowl games with six.

He was also tied first for the most Super Bowl wins by a quarterback and for the most Super Bowl MVP awards. Brady would eventually own these two records alone.

Super Bowl LI – The Greatest Comeback

In the final game of the 16-17 season, Brady had to face one of the biggest challenges in his career: a 25-point deficit with only less than a half to go.

The quarterback did not disappoint. With 43 passes completed—breaking his previous record—for two touchdowns and a combined gain of 466 yards, Brady acted as the focal point of the Patriots’ unanswered 31-point run to overcome the Atlanta Falcons 34-28. Not only did he win his fourth finals MVP, but he also secured his fifth Super Bowl ring.

At 41, Brady continues to defy age with his remarkable outings. Football fans can catch this legendary quarterback in action on October 14 when his Patriots face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Interested viewers from the United States can bet on this match—as well as other Brady and NFL matches—on online sportsbooks including Bovada and BetOnilne.ag, among others.
