Tom Brady won his seventh championship Sunday night when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV, and the Bucs quarterback accomplished a stunning feat in the process.
Brady has become the first quarterback ever to start and win a Super Bowl with teams in different conferences. The 43-year-old veteran won six Super Bowl titles with the AFC's New England Patriots from 2000 through 2019. His triumph with the Buccaneers gives him a Lombardi Trophy with an NFC franchise.
He's now one of two quarterbacks ever to win a Super Bowl with multiple clubs. Longtime rival Peyton Manning is the other -- he won the Lombardi Trophy with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos (both of the AFC).
Brady's seven Super Bowl championships also are more than any other team. The Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers both have won six.
It's really quite remarkable to see Brady setting records and entering new terrain at his age. Winning a championship with a brand new team after a challenging offseason, regular season and playoff run represents one of the most impressive single season performances we've ever seen from a quarterback.
