"The Comeback" Al Bello / Getty Images / Via youtube.com The Atlanta Falcons were up 28-3 in Super Bowl 51 and lost. Brady and the Patriots offense came alive in the second half and dismantled an absolutely gassed Falcons defense. The greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. 2. Everything about his 50-touchdown season in 2007. Andy Lyons / Getty Images At the time, 50 touchdowns was the NFL record, and it was really the first time people admitted Brady wasn't just riding the coattails of good defenses. They fell short of a Super Bowl, but a team still has yet to reach 16 wins in the NFL regular season. 3. Brian Urlacher is juked by Brady, arguably the NFL's slowest quarterback ever. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF FOX Tom Brady is slow if you didn't know. This play deserves more recognition. I know Brady has endless amounts of great plays, but running on a 3rd and long in the 4th quarter, juking a hall-of-famer for a first down...that's magic. 4. Brady wins ring No. 7 in his first season with a new team. Mike Ehrmann / Getty Images Heading into retirement right now, he has more rings than any other football franchise. Think about that. One man has more rings than any other football franchise. 5. Brady gets the ultimate underdog win against the "Greatest Show on Turf" St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl 36. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF FOX The win that started it all. The late great legend John Madden thought the Patriots should run the clock and play for overtime with a tied game. Not the Patriots. Brady marched them down the field for the game-winning field goal by Adam Vinatieri. 6. A 10-year title drought ends in phenomenal fashion at Super Bowl 49. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC How many potential dynasties can Brady derail? This, in my opinion, was the greatest Super Bowl of all time. Not a ridiculous "no defense" shootout, but two stacked rosters that went back and forth all game in a chess match. It ended with the famous Malcolm Butler interception, but people forget about Brady's ridiculous go-ahead drive that was a thing of beauty. 7. Brady makes the most out of a second chance in the infamous "Tuck Rule" game. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CBS Not only was it a forward pass (deal with it), but Brady still had to deliver by driving them down the field in overtime. Whether you love it or hate it, it is still an unforgettable moment in NFL history. 8. "Tuck Rule" game touchdown run leads to his most famous spike in the endzone. Mike Ehrmann / NFL / Via youtube.com As seen above, Brady had become known for his end zone spike, but one stands out among others. Again, not known for his speed, Brady did a little improvising to bring them back into a game that seemed out of reach down by 10 with only 8 minutes to go in a defensive (and snowstorm) battle. He stumbled over his own feet while spiking the football. 9. A grueling defensive game in Super Bowl 53 leads to one of Brady's gutsiest drives ever. Harry How / Getty Images These plays were designed on the fly by offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, which means Brady's game-winning drive was basically backyard football. He found the right spots in the defense and finally got the game's first and only touchdown. 10. A 10-point comeback against "Sack-sonville" in the AFC Championship game is the stuff of legends. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CBS With the help of Danny Amendola's "Danny Playoffs," Brady helped lead his team back from down 10 points in the fourth quarter to send them to Super Bowl 52. 11. Despite losing Super Bowl 52, Brady unleashed an aerial attack unlike any other in championship history. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC Imagine 505 yards not being enough to win a game. That's why I hate shootouts as far as an entertainment measuring stick. It would've been a cool game if the defense showed up, but Brady still broke records, making it an unforgettable feat. 12. Brady and the Patriots force the NFL to change the rules after a playoff "double comeback" against the Baltimore Ravens. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC The Patriots started running a hurry-up offense while sneaking eligible receivers in the game. Safe to say Ravens fans weren't happy. Brady managed two miraculous comebacks in a single game. 13. Brady is thrust into a second half scoring shootout in Super Bowl 38 against the Carolina Panthers. Andy Lyons / Getty Images This is up there as one of the greatest Super Bowls. The Panthers had a gritty performance, but Brady managed to work the ball down the field on the final drive for another game-winning field goal. 14. Brady wins a third Super Bowl to solidify the Patriots dynasty. Jed Jacobsohn / Getty Images Maybe Brady's most forgotten about ring, which is ironic, because this might be one of the best single-season teams of all time. He had another great game for ring number three. 15. Brady outlasts Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs with methodical drives to send them to Super Bowl 53. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CBS Chiefs needed to stop Brady twice to go to the Super Bowl, and they failed both times. This was one of Brady's least productive seasons, and for the first time, it seemed like he was slowing down. But it's the same old story; Brady comes back to win the game. 16. Brady records 50th touchdown pass with Randy Moss to complete the only 16-win regular season ever. View this video on YouTube NBC / Via youtube.com One play. Two records set. Everyone asked what would happen if Brady had an elite wide receiver like Randy Moss. Records broken. That's what happened. 17. Brady beats his 32nd team in the NFL, which happens to be the Patriots, to complete his bingo card. Maddie Meyer / Getty Images Tom Brady has officially beaten every team in the NFL, and it was only right that the last team was the one that helped him grow into becoming the GOAT. 18. Brady completes his 700th touchdown pass for a game-winner in overtime. Julio Aguilar / Getty Images / Via youtube.com What are the chances his 700th career touchdown pass is also a walk-off for a win? That is Brady's career in a nutshell. 19. Tom Brady, the greatest to ever play quarterback, forgets what down it is on the final drive of a game. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF FOX I said unforgettable, not the best, and man was this memorable. He won the whole thing that year, so I'm sure he can look back at this and laugh. 20. Brady crushes the Titans 59-0 in 2009 to record his greatest statistical performance of his career. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CBS Brady recorded 380 yards and 6 touchdowns. This is the worst blowout in NFL history, and the Pats looked good in those classic "Pat Patriots" uniforms. 21. Brady dashes the Saints' dream of an upset with (maybe) his greatest touchdown pass ever. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF FOX The Saints defense was already on the sideline celebrating a victory, but Brady had other ideas. That final pass to Thompkins in the end zone was a pinpoint and a bullet. 22. Brady scorches the Dolphins with five first-half touchdowns to continue their perfect season. Ronald C. Modra / Getty Images A little Jeremy Hayes (me, if you ignored the byline) was in attendance to watch this game. So it might be more unforgettable for me than the average fan, but it was also my first football game, so it had to be on this list. Brady was 21/25 for 354 yards and 6 touchdowns.
