Tom Brady keeps making history in the NFL, reaching his 10th Super Bowl in his career, this time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his first season with the team. The veteran quarterback is ready to win his 7th ring in the league, joining elite company with his first NFC Championship in his career.
TB12 reached an impressive record securing his 10th appearance in the Super Bowl, playing the games more times than a lot of NFL teams. He is now part of an unofficial club with more great players from other sports, including the NBA.

Jordan played in his 6th and last Finals at age 35, Kobe was 31 when he played in his 7th Finals; LeBron was 35 last year when he played in his 10th while Brady emulated LeBron at age 43. His Airness won his 6th series against the Utah Jazz, Kobe did the same against the Boston Celtics while LeBron beat the Miami Heat in six games last season.
Brady will face young superstar Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs next February 6, where we will know if he had success like the rest of the players on the list in their last Finals appearances.
This man keeps making history, adding more and more records and accolades to his impressive resume. Brady is considered one of the greatest athletes of all time and these numbers only make his case stronger.
