Tom Brady will play for his sixth Super Bowl tomorrow. Today, he captured his third regular season MVP award.
Last year's Super Bowl victory helped bolster Tom Brady's argument as the greatest quarterback in history. The 2017 regular season gives him another major award.
Tom Brady led the Patriots to a 13-3 record, before running through the AFC in the NFL Playoffs. On the season, he completed 66.3-percent of his passes for 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.
For his efforts, he has captured his third NFL MVP award. He also won in 2007 and 2010.
Interestingly, those two seasons did not result in Super Bowls. In 2007, the undefeated Patriots were famously upset by the New York Giants, while the 2010 Patriots fell to the New York Jets in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Brady has a chance to add a sixth Super Bowl, and potentially a fifth Super Bowl MVP to his mantle tomorrow. In doing so, it would become even more difficult to argue against his standing atop the spot.
Brady's most recent MVP was announced earlier tonight at the NFL Honors. The show was broadcast on NBC.
