With his team’s stunning come-from-behind victory on Sunday in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady now has more Super Bowl rings than any other quarterback in NFL history, with five, and the most Super Bowl MVPs of any NFL player ― period.
Among all current and former players, only Charles Haley, a former defensive end for the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, now holds as many rings as Brady.
It’s been 15 years since Brady’s Super Bowl victory in 2002, when the then-24-year-old earned Super Bowl MVP after throwing for 145 yards against Kurt Warner and the St. Louis Rams. Brady won the MVP again on Sunday for a record-setting fourth time after breaking numerous records against the Atlanta Falcons in Houston, Texas, including most passing yards (466) and most pass completions (43) on the way to the team’s 34-28 overtime victory.
Brady has long held the record for both most regular season and postseason wins of any quarterback. Now, he has the Super Bowl record to match.
