Tom Brady is a day away from his eighth Super Bowl start. That’s a record. No other player has played in that ridiculous number of Super Bowls, but this is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player after all. At the age of 40, Brady has won his third MVP award and stands alone as the oldest player to ever win the MVP.
According to ESPN, Brady received 40 MVP votes from a nationwide media panel for his 2017 campaign, which saw him go for a league-high 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. The next closest players in voting were Todd Gurley with eight votes, and Carson Wentz with two.
