With the NFL playoff bracket for 2021 set, here is the entire postseason game schedule complete with TV channels for all playoff games , live stream info and more. Latest News. This History Channel meme pokes fun at ages of Tom Brady , Drew Brees in record - setting playoff game .

Tom Brady , the Patriot's quarterback, was immediately dubbed as the greatest of all time as he became the only player with five Super Bowl rings and to win MVP for the fourth time. Other funny quips drew similarity to Hillary Clinton losing the presidency in November, remarking how both camps

Twitter didn't take long to come up with the joke. Drew Brees won a playoff game that featured a special broadcast on Nickelodeon to set up a divisional round matchup with Tom Brady. Social media figured that should have a special broadcast, too, this time on the History Channel.

All that was left was for Brady's team to create a meme embracing the age of the two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks. And... voila!

When Brees' Saints host Brady's Buccaneers on Sunday night, it'll mark the oldest quarterback matchup in NFL history. Brady has played the entire 2020 season at 43 years old, while Brees turned 42 on Friday before Sunday's game. The pair already set that record and broke it again during the regular season in two Brees victories, and now they'll leapfrog the mark one more time.

Brees doesn't want Saints' playoff run to be about him

  Brees doesn't want Saints' playoff run to be about him NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees doesn’t want the Saints to make their upcoming playoff run about him, even if the record-setting quarterback’s career could end on any given weekend. Brees, who turns 42 on Jan. 15 and is the NFL’s all-time leading passer, hasn’t committed to playing another season. His extraordinary 20 seasons as an NFL player could end with either the next Saints loss, or perhaps, a Super Bowl victory. But Brees bristles at the notion that speculation about the end of his playing days should overshadow the story of the Saints’ 2020 season or the club's preparation for the single-elimination NFL post-season.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees is the NFL’s all-time record holder for career touchdown passes. Brees and the Saints play the Panthers on Sunday afternoon, where Brees may add to his record . But he could lose the record on Sunday night, when Brady and the Buccaneers are in Las Vegas to take

When it comes to age and the NFL, it's been mostly kickers who have outlasted Brady and Brees, but maybe no one has been more productive after turning 40 than this pair. They're supposed to be in the midst of a mid-life crisis, but instead, Brady won a ring at 41 and Brees led the NFL in completion percentage at 40.

Maybe Brady and Brees will need to take a nap before their night-time showdown, but once they're on the field, it'll be just one more piece of history they've created.

How old is Tom Brady?

Tom Brady is 43 years old. His birthday is in August, so each year he hits that new age before the NFL season starts and plays the entire campaign at that next year.

Brady was born in 1977. For context, that was a few months before Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in a World Series game for the Yankees to earn the "Mr. October" moniker. The Bill Walton-led Portland Trail Blazers won the NBA title shortly before Brady was born.
