Tom Brady was named the NFL's most valuable player Saturday night for the third time in his career. The 40-year-old Brady — who will attempt to win his sixth Lombardi Trophy Sunday in Super Bowl LII — is the oldest MVP in NFL history.
Brady led the NFL in passing yards in 2017, throwing for 4,577 yards alongside 32 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a 102.8 passer rating en route to leading New England to its ninth consecutive division title.
Brady earned 40 of a possible 50 votes from the Associated Press, with Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (8) and Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (2) also receiving consideration.
Pro Football Weekly announced its end-of-season awards last month, when Brady was named Most Valuable Player. Check out Eric Edholm's story on Brady, Broadway's leading man, dominating in a way few his age ever have.
