Tom Brady needs four touchdown passes for most in NFL postseason history

The weather forecast for Saturday evenings game between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots isn’t ripe for passing conditions, but I’m going to assume Tom Brady won’t care.

Few players enjoy playing in less than optimal conditions than Brady, who according to Adam Schefter is three touchdown passes away from besting Joe Montana as the all-time postseason leader:

Rain and winds in Foxboro, which could be hindrance, but: Tom Brady is 3 TD passes shy of tying Joe Montana for most in postseason history.

Of course, throwing three touchdown passes in any postseason game isn’t exactly easy, let alone doing so in murky conditions. That said – it’s hard to imagine the Patriots won’t give Brady the opportunity.

Brady, who has participated in 24 postseason contests currently has a career 87.4 quarterback rating and has thrown 42 touchdowns to 22 interceptions in the process. Meanwhile, Montana who participated in 23 games had a 95.6 quarterback rating while throwing 45 touchdowns to 21 interceptions.

Assuming the Patriots are to advance to the AFC Championship and/or Super Bowl, Brady will almost assuredly move into the number one position.
