FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tom Brady, his remarkable career at 17 years and counting and not showing the slightest sign of nearing its end, added to his unprecedented list of accomplishments with yet another trip to the Super Bowl. The 39-year-old quarterback led the Patriots to the AFC title for the seventh time – and the third time in six seasons – with another signature performance in a 36-17 win over the Steelers on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium.
It will be Brady against the Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5 in Houston (6:30 p.m., Fox).
The Patriots will make their record ninth Super Bowl appearance, and Brady could become the first quarterback to win the Super Bowl five times. Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw also won four.
