New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tops the charts of the NFL Top 100 for the second-straight season. Brady edged out Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz to take first place.

This marks the third time that Brady earned the top spot, ranking first in the inaugural list of 2011, before taking the lead again in 2017 and 2018. Brady ranked fourth in 2012 and 2013, third in 2014 and 2015, and second in 2016. He’s the only player in the league to rank in the top five every year.

“He’s number one because of the production [and] the individual statistics. He’s had a revolving door in terms of the supporting cast surrounding him from year to year and yet he doesn’t miss a beat,” Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said. “[He] delivers throws time-and-time again, especially in big moments.”

“He has no fear,” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson added. “He’s the greatest of all time.”

Watch NFL players Marshon Lattimore, Taylor Lewan, Mike Evans, Derek Carr, Matthew Slater, Dion Lewis, Brandin Cooks, Kirk Cousins, and Russell Wilson, explain why Brady deserves to top the list.
