For the seventh time in his storied NFL career, Tom Brady is a Super Bowl champion.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV to further solidify Brady's status as the greatest quarterback of all time. The former New England Patriots signal-caller threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns in the 31-9 win.

This wild stat sums up Brady's Super Bowl greatness

Brady already held a number of Super Bowl records heading into the game, but the 43-year-old pulled away even further from the pack with Sunday's performance. Here's an updated look at Brady's all-time Super Bowl records as he adds another Lombardi Trophy to his collection.

Super Bowl appearances - 10

When Brady stepped onto the field Sunday night, he officially appeared in his 10th Super Bowl. To put that absurd number in perspective, Denver Broncos great John Elway is next on the list with five Super Bowl appearances.

What makes Brady's feat even crazier is he's the first quarterback to start a Super Bowl in three different decades.

Super Bowl titles - 7

Brady extended his lead in Super Bowl titles by winning his seventh on Sunday night. Second place on the all-time list is former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Charles Haley, who had five. Legendary quarterbacks Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw are the next QBs on the list with four.

NFL championships (includes pre-Super Bowl era) - 7

Brady now has the most championships ever if you include the pre-Super Bowl era. He had been tied at six with Fuzzy Thurston (Colts/Packers), Forrest Gregg (Packers/Cowboys) and Herb Adderly (Packers/Cowboys).


Super Bowl MVP awards - 5

Brady already had the most MVP awards heading into Sunday night, but he extended that lead over his childhood idol Joe Montana (3).

Touchdown passes - 21

Another award Brady already held, but the lead widened with his three touchdown passes vs. Kansas City.

Passing yards - 3,039

Ho-hum, another ridiculous number for Brady and a lead that was extended on Sunday.

Pass attempts - 421

No surprise here. Brady has appeared in 10 Super Bowls, so naturally he's going to air it out in the big game more than any other QB in NFL history.

Pass completions - 277

Brady had 21 completions in Super Bowl LV to widen his lead.

Most pass completions in a single game - 43

Brady completed a ridiculous 43 passes in Super Bowl LI vs. the Atlanta Falcons to complete the Patriots' miraculous comeback from 28-3.

Playoff wins - 34

Four wins were added to Brady's lengthy résumé this postseason.

Playoff games started - 45

Another insane number. Brady has started in more playoff games than many QBs have in their entire NFL careers.

Playoff touchdown passes - 83

Brady tossed 10 TD passes this postseason, three in Super Bowl LV.

Playoff passing yards - 12,449

Brady amassed 1,061 yards through his four postseason games en route to his seventh championship.
