Brady will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in his 10th Super Bowl on Feb. 7, and like the rest of the football world, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is in awe of what the future Hall of Famer is doing at age 43.
"You can see where Tom's leadership on the offensive side is showing," Reid said Monday, according to Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk. "He's playing at an extremely high level. And for somebody his age, it's unbelievable. I mean, it's unbelievable for a 25-year-old to be doing what he's doing, let alone a 43-year-old."
Initially, some thought the fit between Brady and Bucs head coach Bruce Arians' system wasn't ideal, and that the signal-caller's arm strength was waning. But the veteran has flourished during his first year in Tampa.
The six-time Super Bowl champion racked up 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns - tied for second in 2020, and his most since the 2007 campaign - against 12 interceptions during the regular season.
In the Bucs' three road playoff wins after being a wild-card team, Brady has thrown for 860 yards with seven scores and three picks.
