On the eve of another Super Bowl appearance, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the NFL MVP for the third time in his illustrious career.

The future hall-of-famer and undoubtedly the best player to ever set foot on a football field, Brady secured 40-of-50 first place votes after throwing for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns in his 18th pro season. And at 40-years-old, the Patriots QB is now the oldest player to win the MVP award and really has shown no signs of slowing down.

Brady navigated through injuries to his offensive line, backfield and receiving corps, leading one of his least talented Patriots teams to a 13-3 record and the 15th AFC East title of the Bill Belichick-era dynasty. Along the way, the 13-time Pro Bowler led the NFL in passing yards (4,577) while finishing third in adjusted yards per attempt (8.36), passing touchdowns (32) and passer rating (102.8). Even better, his 10 touchdowns and 98.0 rating under pressure were the highest marks in the league.

Finishing behind Brady was Rams running back Todd Gurley and Eagles QB Carson Wentz who’ll have to remain on the sidelines when Philadelphia takes on Brady and the Patriots in Sunday’s Super Bowl from Minneapolis.

Anyways, add this latest honor to Brady’s collection that includes a Comeback Player of the Year, three regular-season MVPs, four Super Bowl MVPs and five Lombardi Trophies with a possible sixth coming tomorrow.
