Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the new champions of the NFC thanks to a 31-26 road victory over the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. That win did not just punch the team’s ticket to the Super Bowl, it also allowed Brady to return to the game’s biggest stage for an unprecedented 10th time.
The greatest quarterback of all time may not have played his best game from start to finish — he threw three touchdowns but later also added three interceptions — but he still did his job and is now competing for the Vince Lombardi Trophy yet again. The simple fact that the 43-year-old is in a position to win his seventh ring created plenty of reactions on social media, with some of his former teammates also sharing their thoughts on the achievement:
