Tom Brady by the numbers: The G.O.A.T.'s most impressive records

On August 3, 1977, a G.O.A.T. was born. 

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., the Greatest Of All Time, entered the world on this day 42 years ago – and has seemingly been in the NFL ever since. 

The quarterback, who has played for the New England Patriots since being drafted in 2000, has put together an impressive resume throughout his career. Brady has broken and holds onto multiple league records, not the least of which being the most Super Bowl wins by a single player in history.
