NFL playoffs 2013: Tom Brady sets record for wins

Jim Rogash

Tom Brady has seen quite a bit of success throughout the playoffs in his career. What made his win over the Texans so special?

The Patriots defeated the Texans 41-28 on Sunday evening, remaining in control the majority of the way. Once again Tom Brady led his squad to another postseason victory, something New England fans have grown accustomed over the past decade, but this win was special.

After besting Houston, Brady became the all-time leader in playoff wins for a quarterback, breaking his tie with Joe Montana. Brady now sits on 17 postseason wins in his illustrious NFL career, his first dating back to 2001.

Brady has 23 playoff starts over the course of his career. Everyone knows how successful the Patriots have been in January with him under center, but his ridiculous 17-6 record in the postseason will continue to stand out among the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game.

Just seven other players at his position have recorded double-digit playoff wins. Ben Roethlisberger is the only other active player in that territory.
