Tom Brady passes Joe Montana for most playoff touchdowns

i

Tom Brady threw 3 touchdown passes to beat the Ravens on Saturday night and made history by breaking Joe Montana’s record for most postseason touchdowns with 46.

Brady tied the record with a touchdown toss to Gronk in the 3rd but broke it in the best way possible, by leading the team down the field being down by 3 in the 4th, and throwing a touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell to take the lead with not much time left. True Montana form, true Brady form.

Brady also passed Peyton Manning for most postseason passing yards in NFL history in the first half with a touchdown to Danny Amendola. Manning held it with 6,598 yards and I doubt he got it back on Sunday. Manning didn’t pass for many yards and Brady would finish the game with 367 yards.

Belichick weighed in on Brady passing Joe Montana’s postseason touchdowns with glowing praise for his QB.

“He deserves it. Tom’s a great, clutch player with tremendous poise, vision, accuracy,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “So, he’s done it with a lot of different receivers, a lot of different situations against a lot of different defenses. I think that speaks to his greatness and his ability to perform consistently under pressure. No quarterback I’d rather have than Tom Brady.”
