Pirates quarterback Tom Brady He already owns some of the NFL’s top postseason records, and he’ll add to those records when the Bucs host the Cowboys Monday night.
Here are just a few of Brady’s postseason records, and some notes on how far anyone else in the league is from equaling Brady’s records:
Matches have been played: Brady will appear in his 49th postseason game on Monday. His former player Adam Vinatieri is second all-time, having appeared in 32 postseason games. Another former Brady player, Stephen Gostkowski, is tied with Jerry Rice for third with 29.
Games started: Brady has started all postseason games, so he’ll bring that record to 48 as well. Kickers are not starters, so Rice is next with 29 starts.
