Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are celebrating their Super Bowl berth tonight, but the star quarterback made sure to have a moment with his star QB opponent, too.

ESPN NFL insider Jeff Darlington revealed tonight that Brady approached Mahomes in the locker room after tonight's epic Patriots-Chiefs AFC Championship Game.

Brady reportedly approached a security guard inside the Chiefs' stadium, asking to see the star Kansas City quarterback.

"Tom Brady just quietly approached a security guard waiting outside the Chiefs’ locker room — and asked if he could see Patrick Mahomes," Darlington tweeted.

"Brady was escorted into a room where he spoke briefly with him. A very clear display of respect from one incredible quarterback to another."

Brady and Mahomes were both incredible tonight, but only one QB gets to advance to the Super Bowl.

Perhaps Mahomes will get there one day, but it's still Tom Brady Time in the AFC. He'll be going for his sixth Super Bowl championship.

The Patriots will be taking on the Rams in the Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in two weeks. New England has opened as a 1-point favorite over Los Angeles in the game.
