Tom Brady already owns a plethora of NFL records. And yet, the latest record that he’s in reach of might be the most impressive one yet.
John Breech of CBS Sports pointed out that Brady could break the record for most playoff wins against NFC teams.
At this moment, Brett Favre has the most playoff wins against NFC teams (12). Tom Brady, Joe Montana and Aaron Rodgers are tied for second with 10 wins each. Upon first glance, this might not seem that impressive. However, it’s important to remember that Brady basically spent two decades in the AFC.
The only way he could defeat an NFC team in the playoffs was by making the Super Bowl.
The fact that Brady could break the record for most playoff wins against NFC teams while only spending three years in the conference is truly incredible.
Despite only playing for an NFC team for two seasons, Tom Brady can set the all-time record for postseason wins against NFC teams this year. https://t.co/dsFzDJSezO

In order for Brady to break this record, he’ll need to lead the Buccaneers to another Super Bowl appearance. Considering Brady played very well last season, it’s not far-fetched to say Tampa Bay could return to the big game.
