Tom Brady has more career playoff wins than all but four NFL franchises.

There is no player who is a greater winner in NFL history than Tom Brady.

Who cares if he is way on the wrong side of 40? All Brady does is win, no matter what. From his days as a game manager with the early 2000s New England Patriots, to his current Florida Gulf Coast residency with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady has won an insurmountable seven Super Bowls. With the Buccaneers two wins away from getting back, Brady is chasing even more history.

Only the Patriots (37), the Pittsburgh Steelers (36) and the Green Bay Packers (36) have more playoff wins than does Brady. He is tied with the Dallas Cowboys at 35 career playoff wins. The 28 other NFL franchises have won 34 or fewer postseason games. How is this even possible?

The next closest quarterback when it comes to postseason victory totals is none other than Brady’s boyhood idol, Joe Montana. Brady is a NorCal guy who grew up rooting for Montana when he was with the San Francisco 49ers. Despite winning four Super Bowls himself, Montana’s 19 career playoff victories pail in comparison to the greatest quarterback to ever walk this earth.

The really cool part about this postseason is if the Buccaneers repeat as Super Bowl champions, Brady will have 38 career playoff victories, which would put him ahead of every NFL franchise, including the Patriots. Only the Packers can extend their lead on Brady, but if he beats them in the NFC Championship like the did a season ago, Green Bay will only be at 37 playoff wins all time.

Brady may only have one more year after this, so let’s appreciate greatness in full effect now.
