It took a few tries, but the former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady is now in elite company. After beating the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX, the Lombardi trophy is headed back to Foxboro as the New England Patriots are on top of the NFL world once again.
Brady had another Super Bowl performance to remember and further cemented his legacy as arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Winning the Super Bowl MVP award, the third of his career, he joins former San Francisco 49er quarterback Joe Montana as the only three-time MVP winner in NFL history.
Brady also joined Montana and former Pittsburgh Steeler Terry Bradshaw as a four-time Super Bowl winning quarterback as well.
Brady completed 37 of 50 passes and threw for four touchdowns in the game. His 37 completions was a Super Bowl record and he also passed Montana to become the career record holder in touchdown passes in a Super Bowl.
There's no denying that Brady has added yet another exclamation mark to a rock-solid Hall of Fame career after Sunday nights performance.
