Tom Brady will play in his ninth Super Bowl on Feb 3, this after beating the Chiefs, 37-31, in overtime in Kansas City on Sunday. 

Brady, 41, finished 30-of-46 for 348 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, leading the Patriots to victory on the opening possession of overtime.

Did we mention Brady is 41? How has he been this successful for this long?

“I think it’s kind of hard to explain, but I don’t think there’s another human being on the planet as competitive as Tom Brady,” three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Brown said on The DA Show. “I like to think that I was competitive or I am competitive, and I’ve seen competitive people. But I’ve never seen anything like what Tom Brady brings to the table every single day. So it’s kind of unexplainable, just how somebody who’s been this successful for this long can still carry a chip on his shoulder for something that happened almost 20 years ago. Maybe I’ll have to ask his parents, ‘What did you do to this kid?’ He’s a different cat.”

The Patriots went 3-5 on the road this season but still found a way to win at Arrowhead, where the Chiefs were 8-1 (including the playoffs).

Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead played pivotal roles in the win, rushing a combined 41 times for 154 yards and four touchdowns. That duo rushed 28 times for 141 yards and four touchdowns against the Chargers last week.

And the Patriots are back in the Super Bowl for the fourth time in five years.

“I didn’t have too many doubts about them because I saw the way they entered the season and then the way they beat the Chargers last week and their style of play,” Brown said. “They wanted to make it a running football team, so I knew they had a chance with the weather. I thought they would probably time-manage better and manage the game better than what the Chiefs would do.”
