He became the first quarterback to reach 300 touchdown passes in the regular season. The last time a quarterback reached that mark was 2008 when Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos had 305 touchdown passes.

This is the sixth Super Bowl victory for New England. They have now tied the Dallas Cowboys for the most championship titles with five each. The Patriots will be playing their fifth consecutive Super Bowl after defeating Atlanta 35-25 in the NFC Championship Game.

New England has never lost a game in which they have been favored by more than 17 points. They are 4-0 in such games dating back to the 2000 season.

The Patriots are hoping to become just the second team in NFL history to win a title in each of its first four seasons. The 1972 Miami Dolphins accomplished this feat.

Last year's champion Ravens fell short of making it three straight titles when they were defeated by New England 24-17 at Foxborough. This year's match up will take place on February 5th at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

In what year did Tom Brady break the touchdown record with 50 and go 16-0?

Brady set an NFL record with 50 touchdown passes in the 2007 season (the mark was surpassed by Brady's longtime rival Peyton Manning in 2013), and he led New England to the first 16-0 regular season in NFL history, receiving NFL MVP honors in the process. The Patriots lost at home to the 15-1 Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the 2008 playoffs.

Prior to the 2007 season, the most touchdowns thrown by a quarterback in a single season was 39, which was accomplished six times during the 1970s and 1980s. The previous record was 29, set by Manning in 2013.

Brady also holds several other records from his 2007 campaign: He is currently third all time in total yardage (15,921 yards), second in passing yards (14,695) and minutes (1,719 minutes), and first in touchdown passes (50).

The record for most consecutive wins to start a career was held by Joe Kapp of the Los Angeles Rams, who won 14 games over two seasons starting in 1959. Brady has since tied this record and then broken it twice more. Kapp played only two seasons in the NFL and lost both of them. Brady has been a starter for every game of his career except one (he missed one game due to suspension), finishing 116-46 during that time period.

Is Tom Brady the greatest quarterback in NFL history?

In February, Tom Brady won his NFL-record seventh Super Bowl, bolstering his claim as the best quarterback in NFL history. Brady's professional CV is unrivaled. In his 19 seasons as a starter, he has reached 10 Super Bowls and leads all quarterbacks in career touchdown passes. His regular season record of 17 wins is also a league mark.

Brady is only behind Joe Montana and Aaron Rodgers for most career postseason victories by a quarterback. He is the only player to win a scoring title and a division championship in the same year; his New England Patriots did so in 2004. Brady has also been selected to eight consecutive All-Star Games and won four MVP awards.

What makes him so great? Brashness may be one of his biggest attributes. Despite being one of the most successful players in NFL history, Brady still likes to show off on the field (example: dancing after touchdowns). He has also been known to taunt opponents during games (example: yelling "Omaha!" after throwing an interception).

However, what separates Brady from other great quarterbacks is his ability to make game-changing plays. He is the only quarterback in NFL history with a perfect record when leading at halftime (9-0). He also is the only quarterback in NFL history with a winning percentage above.600 in the playoffs (he is 51-14).
