Tom Brady’s name appears 17 times in the Super Bowl record book

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady‘s name is all over the Super Bowl record book.

We took a look at the Patriots’ records in the Super Bowl section of the 2018 NFL Record & Fact Book, and Brady appears a whopping 17 times. As you probably know, he owns the record for most Super Bowls played (eight so far, with a ninth coming up), and all the career passing records. But Brady’s name is in the record book for even more records than most fans would realize: He has the record for most passes without an interception in a Super Bowl, with 48 — and he’s done that twice, in Super Bowl XLII and in Super Bowl LII.

And he’s even in the Super Bowl record book for a few things he’d prefer not to be in there for, such as most fumbles (he’s fumbled three times in Super Bowls, putting him in a tie for the third-most ever) — but that’s actually not bad, to play quarterback in eight Super Bowls and only fumble three times.

Other Patriots whose names are in the Super Bowl record book include tight end Rob Gronkowski, wide receiver Julian Edelman, running back James White, kicker Stephen Gostkowski and punter Ryan Allen.

The full list of Patriots Super Bowl records is here.

  1. I’m not a fan of the Patriots especially Bill Belichick but have to Respect what Brady has accomplished through out his career.

  2. Deflated Footballs and smashed his cell phone to try and hide evidence will be Brady’s legacy….

    He also has the most asterisks for cheating-related wins

    Actually he has zero asterisks next to his name , but if it makes you feel better to CRY on the internet go with that.

    I just looked and didn’t see that anywhere. Perhaps that is merely a fantasy of fans whose teams Brady has beat like a drum for almost two decades

  5. You have to be a chump to continue watching/caring about the NFL if you actually believe the games are rigged. What’s more likely is you’re a jealous fanboy that’s just tired of watching a team other than yours dominate the league for 2 decades. You should grow up and try to appreciate the unprecedented run the Patriots and Brady are on, you’re not likely to ever witness this again.

    You’re tired of the Pats in the big game, I get it. I used to despise the Yankees of the 90s and early 2000s but came to respect them.

    And remove all the headlines and noise, what cheating do you really have? NFL admitted in federal court they have no proof of Tom cheating, they haven’t released PSI collection from the entire following season, etc…it was a joke. And spy gate was a camera in wrong spot, it was cheating by the letter of the law, but you can still do the same thing 11 years later so it isn’t like PEDs or something.

    18 years later, still playing at a high level, you just can’t call all of This cheating. Well you can, but you’ll just be coming off as a bitter person.

    So you are saying that Brady was suspended for 4 games for cheating (destruction of league requested evidence, cell phone which he destroyed relating to cheating investigation) for no reason and he was unable to get his suspension overturned by independent court action? Wow, just wow! Trivia, how many HOF qbs have been suspended for cheating?

  8. The haters crack me up. Last week, when Brady got the ball in OT, in a hostile environment, in dead winter temperatures, you had no doubt he was winning the game. People were so sure, we had to hear about changing the OT rules for a week. Brady has broken the league. That’s how good he is.

  9. Actually he did get Deflategate overturned by court action when the NFL admitted to Judge Berman that they had no evidence of Brady doing anything. On appeal, the 2nd Circuit reversed 2-1 on the grounds that even though the NFL had no proof, the NFLPA had agreed that Goodell had total discretion regardless of the truth. Which is why Brady “lost” and immediately went to 4 more Super Bowls just to prove what a fool Goodell is.

    p.s. Don’t forget Peyton’s record for fastest score for the opposing team.

  10. Pats fans are the 2nd worst fanbase behind the Steelers. They incessantly whine about supposed haters, yet they bash Joe Montana, the 49ers, the Broncos, the Colts, etc. I’ve seen them bash pretty much every player and every team. They’re also hyper-sensitive babies over any perceived criticism leveled at the Patriots, when – lets be honest – Spygate was a real thing. The Pats earned that just as much as they earned their rings. Brady did dump his cell phone and that guy did call himself “the deflator”…and he wasn’t talking about his weight. Have some sense. That said, those things shouldn’t take much away from the titles. Just quit whining, and maybe people wouldn’t hate your fanbase so much.

  11. Which record will be broken first?

    Tom Brady: 9 super bowls,

    or

    Peyton Manning: 9 playoff one and dones

  12. To the spygate trolls:

    Brady has now reached more super bowls, post spygate, than any other QB has in their entire career.

  13. All of the folks talking about Brady’s 4 game suspension for “cheating”. Remember that was related to air in footballs, something which many QBs such as Eli are in the record as saying they do. Not steroids, or anything like. AIR IN FOOTBALLS. Who gives a crap. You are just jealous and/or a hater. You wish your team was really good for like 20 straight years.

  15. I have no problem with people thinking Brady is the GOAT. I do have a problem with people acting like I have to to agree with that opinion.

    So he has 2 Super Bowl wins. 5>2 🙂

  17. No one cared about the air pressure inside of footballs until it concerned the greatest quarterback in NFL history. When Brad Johnson paid people $7,500 to have footballs altered in Super Bowl XXXVII, no one batted an eye. When coaches were heating footballs on the sidelines in the Vikings vs. Panthers game, no one cared. When there were footballs below 12 PSI in the Steelers vs. Giants game a few seasons ago, NO ONE CARED. How-wonderfully-convenient…

    Bart Star only won 2 Super Bowls. Green Bay has only won 4 Super Bowls I, II, XXXI & XLV. 1/15/67, 1/14/68, 1/26/97, 2/6/2011, your facts are a little off.

    .

  19. I wonder if these loser haters notice how FEW readers agree with their silly posts. Tom Brady is the undisputed GOAT. It doesn’t matter WHO he is playing with, he still wins. Look at all the roster changes he’s had to deal with, and yet here he is again… in the Super Bowl. The guy is the best athlete to ever play in any sport. GOAT in SPORTS!

    —————————

    No he is saying that Brady was suspended to uphold the commissioners powers. His original suspension was overturned by the courts after the NFL admitted they had no evidence of cheating and also the transcript showed that the cell phone destruction story never happened and that Brady had in fact cooperated with the investigation. The judges finding pointed out that all these things meant that there was no grounds at all to suspend Brady. The NFL did not challenge that finding because they couldn’t. They had been caught lying in the transcripts and had no basis to challenge. So instead they went after the CBA and argued that it granted the commissioner the powers to suspend any player he wants at his discretion and without the need to provide reason. Sadly it does say that. Brady did not like it but his lawyers pointed out that the law suit was no longer about his innocence, nor even about him at all, he was simply a casualty of Goodells power game. His lawyers also,pointed out that the CBA did indeed provide those powers and that he would lose any appeal trying to say it did not. The only way the union (who foolishly got into this mess) can address those powers Goodell established will be to negotiate for them at the next CBA which will of course mean giving concessions that undermine the pkayers in favor ofbthe owners. You have to admit it was well played by Goodell who’s job is to take away from the players to give to the owners. He did get the help he counted on from the haters who he knew would run with his lues, even continuing to repeat them long after they got exposed. It was easy for him to manipulate the haters because haters are stupid. They are to busy hating to stop and think.

  21. “I wonder if these loser haters…”

    ——–

    That’s because there have been about thirty stories about Brady and the Pats’ records on here since the AFCC. I don’t mean to offend you, but most of the rest of us fans of other teams got the picture already, and most of us don’t bother reading the same thing incessantly.

  22. New England Patriots and Tom Brady:

    PRIOR to DEFLATEGATE: 5 AFC Championships WINS and 3 Super Bowl WINS.

    AFTER DEFLATEGATE: 4 AFC Championships WINS, 2 Super Bowl WINS, and a fourth Super Bowl this week.

  23. Good for Brady but all the records after NFL rule changes to favor offenses should have an asterisk next to them.

    How about an asterisk before and after all your userid’s?

  25. So you are saying that Brady was suspended for 4 games for cheating

    —-
    Brady was not suspended for cheating, he was suspended because Goodell wanted to demonstrate that he could. That was the whole point of the appeal.

    Always happy to educate the uninformed. 🙂

    Good for you still clinging onto your Brady and Patriots hate. I wish I was so upset in my head at a team that I would creat a user ID that shows how much they are not in my head. Enjoy the SB big guy.

    The difference between Brady and all the other Great QB’s is Bill Belichek. Without Belichek he would be another great QB.

    —-
    And without Brady, Bill would probably have the same resume as Andy Reid.

    Both have made this team who they are, it never had to be one over the other. 🙂

    Well there was some overlap but you know what I mean. The NFL championship as it was is not a Super Bowl. Starr has 5 league titles but only 2 of those are Super Bowl titles.
