Tom Brady might have just cemented his name as the greatest quarterback of all time.
Brady was named the NFL MVP for the third time in his already hall of fame career. Brady becomes the oldest player to ever win the MVP award at the age of 40.
Brady received 40 of the 50 votes. Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley finished second with eight votes, while Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz received two votes.

At 40, Brady had one of his best seasons with an NFL-leading 4,577 passing yards, 32 touchdown passes and eight interceptions, a passer rating of 102.8 and a 13-3 record to top the AFC. He did that despite missing his top receiver, Julian Edelman, for the entire season.
Brady joins Peyton Manning (5), Brett Favre (3) and Johnny Unitas (3) as the only NFL players with at least three MVP Awards and is also the oldest player in NFL history to be named league MVP.
If father time is undefeated, Brady is sure looking to give father time his first lost.
Brady enters his 8th Super Bowl game looking for his 6th championship. His play hasn’t diminished at all and saying he can play well into his early 40s isn’t out of the picture. All signs point towards this not being Brady’s last MVP and Super Bowl appearance.
