The playoffs are Tom Brady’s time. With the 42-year-old quarterback going into his 17th season of making the playoffs as the New England Patriots’ starting quarterback, Brady has plenty more records to post up for himself. And it’s not just because of the possibility of him getting an unprecedented seventh Super Bowl win either.
Here are a few of the records that Brady will be adding on to this Saturday night against the Tennessee Titans.
Games played: Saturday’s game will be Brady’s 41st postseason game. Adam Vinatieri is next in NFL history, with 32 playoff games.

It’s an incredible list of accomplishments for a quarterback that is without a doubt a first-ballot Hall of Famer. It is one of the best resumes to have in NFL history, and with the likelihood that he’ll continue to play next season at the age of 43, he’ll only continue to add to his illustrious career wherever he goes. But first, Brady will need to focus on his game against the Titans at home.
