It’s no secret that Tom Brady has been the most dominant quarterback in the history of the NFL, winning seven Super Bowls with three league MVP awards. But one stat puts that recent dominance in a whole new category and adds another layer of intrigue ahead of Monday night’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.

As pointed out by NFL reporter Babe Laufenberg, Tom Brady himself has a chance to surpass the Dallas Cowboys franchise in playoff wins this week. Entering Monday night’s game, Brady has 35 career playoff wins while the Cowboys also have 35 playoff wins as a franchise.

“If Tom Brady beats the Cowboys on Monday night, he will surpass the Cowboys’ all-time playoff win total. Not Staubach’s playoff wins. Or Aikman’s. I mean the entire organization. Brady-35 playoff wins. Cowboys franchise-35 playoff wins,” Laufenberg said in a tweet.

It’s an absolutely insane stat, and the NFL World had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

“Tom Brady had 35 career playoff wins. That’s 27 more than any quarterback in the 2023 playoffs (Mahomes has 8). You can double the total amount of playoff wins of the 13 other starting QBs (17) and it would still be less than Brady’s total postseason wins,” Jordan Moore of The Athletic said in a tweet.

“Right when I thought nobody could find another fun negative stats that could embarrass the Cowboys,” one fan said on Twitter.

“Speaks to how amazing Brady career has been & how utterly incompetent then Jones family is to allow him to catch up…” another fan said on Twitter.

“Like Tom needs more incentive,” Matt Mosely of ESPN said in a Tweet.

“Tom Brady is one playoff win from having as many as any franchise, other than the Patriots,” Pro Football Talk said in a Tweet.

As Brady goes for that next playoff win, history is on his side. Brady has never lost to the Dallas Cowboys in his entire time in the league.
