1. Brady has more playoff wins by himself (27) than 28 NFL franchises do in their entire history. Among them: Oakland (25), New York Giants (24 wins), and Washington (23). Or an easier way to do this: Only Pittsburgh (36 wins), Dallas (34), Green Bay (32) and San Francisco (31) have more playoff wins than Brady.
2. Brady has started two more Super Bowls (seven) than any other quarterback in history. (John Elway had five starts.) Seven is the amount of combined Super Bowl starts by the following:
a. Joe Montana (4), Brett Favre (2) and Dan Marino (1).
b. Terry Bradshaw (4) and Ben Roethlisberger (3).
c. John Elway (5) and Bart Starr (2).
d. Peyton Manning (4) and Troy Aikman (3).
3. Brady’s five Super Bowl wins are also a record, one more than Bradshaw and Montana. Add the total amount of rings won by Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Drew Brees and you’re still one behind Brady.
4. The “Brady has more than X, Y and Z combined” device bears a lot of fruit. Brady has as many playoff wins as John Elway and Troy Aikman combined.
5. Brady has more playoff starts (including Sunday) as Peyton Manning and Johnny Unitas combined. Even with Manning long gone, Brady can still beat him and the Colts.
6. On Sunday, Brady will have started twice as many playoff games as Dan Marino. He currently has nine postseason losses compared to 10 for the Dolphins Hall of Famer.
7. Brady has more passing TDs in the Super Bowl (15) than all but 25 quarterbacks do in their entire playoff careers. Some Hall of Fame QBs who don’t have more than 15 career playoff touchdown passes: Bart Starr, Dan Fouts, Fran Tarkenton, Otto Graham and Bob Griese.
