With his seventh Super Bowl ring, the Bucs quarterback accomplished a feat that hasn’t happened in the NFL since 1978.

With the victory of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by 31-9 on Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LV, Tom Brady He joined an extraordinarily exclusive club of athletes from the four major leagues in the United States.

As if his records were few as the only player in NFL history to win seven championships in NFL, or having appeared in 10 Super Bowls, Brady also adds more titles of Super Bowl than any of the 32 franchises in the league.

The Pittsburgh Steelers Y New England Patriots –equipment with which Brady won their first six titles – they each own six championships Super Bowl.

That makes Brady in an absolute sporting rarity in sporting terms.

According to data from the Elias Sports Bureau, the last player of the NFL who held more titles of Super Bowl that any of the franchises was Marv Fleming, until 1978. A tight end who had played for the Green Bay Packers Y Miami Dolphins, Fleming had four titles of Super Bowl, before the Steelers will add their fourth title.

In the NHL, the last person with the most victories of Stanley Cup that any franchise was Gord Pettinger, who won four titles with three teams (Rangers, Red Wings, Bruins) in the 1930s.

In the NBA, this feat has never happened.

Of course, if we count total NFL championships, Brady I barely crossed the midway point to reach the 13 titles that the Packers in all 101 NFL seasons. Nine of those championships came in the era before Super Bowl.

Of course, none of that detracts from what he achieved Brady. In fact, Brady is already the top winner in the history of the NFL. With Sunday’s triumph, he left behind the tie he had with three Packers, in six championships each.

Fuzzy Thurston was champion of the NFL with the Baltimore Colts in 1958, with the Packers in 1961, 1962 and 1965, and was crowned in Super Bowls I and II with Green Bay, at the end of the 1966 and 1967 campaigns. Forrest Gregg Y Herb Adderly shared those same five titles with Green Bay, and then they added one more with the Dallas Cowboys, the one from Super Bowl VI, together.

And if that was not enough, Brady became the only person to win titles in the NFL in three different decades, the second quarterback to lead two different franchises to win the Super Bowl, and the second quarterback to win a Super Bowl in his first year with his team.

His five appointments as Most valuable Player of the Super Bowl also constitute a mark of the NFL.
