Tom Brady’s Super Bowl victory was already impressive enough. But today’s news just makes his championship run from 2020 that much more impressive.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, when Brady beat the Chiefs at Super Bowl 55 — and earned MVP honors in the process — he did so on a fully torn MCL that required surgery after the big game.
Brady’s championship season was already impressive enough, as he became the oldest quarterback to start, play, and win a Super Bowl, at the age of 43. He is also the oldest Super Bowl MVP in history after throwing for 201 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-9 blowout win.
And to think, he did all of that, well past the age of 40, on a fully torn MCL. The legend of Tom Brady grows larger by the day.
Brady underwent successful surgery after the season and is expected to be fully healthy once training camp opens at the end of the month.
