Tom Brady will tie an NFL record just by playing Saturday

BY Cameron DaSilva • January 12, 2016

Tom Brady is making his 13th trip to the postseason on Saturday as he and the New England Patriots take on the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady already owns postseason records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, and both completions and attempts, but he'll tie another one just by playing in the game.

Saturday will be Brady's 30th career postseason game, which will tie an NFL record held by former Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri. If Brady and the Patriots win on Saturday, Brady will get a chance to set the record, barring an injury.

In Brady's previous 29 postseason games, he's thrown 53 touchdown passes and 26 interceptions and owns a 21-8 record. He's also rushed for five touchdowns, as well.

The fact that Brady has played in 29 games thus far proves how great he's been throughout his career. He'll have a shot at a fifth Super Bowl in the coming weeks, and he'll likely do so with his favorite target, Julian Edelman, back on the field. Edelman is expected to return from a broken foot to play against the Chiefs on Saturday.
