A look back at Tom Brady's Super Bowl history

The Bucs' quarterback has six Super Bowl rings, and he's going for number seven right here in Tampa Bay.

TAMPA, Fla — No one knows the Super Bowl quite like Tom Brady. 

He has more Super Bowl appearances than any one else. And more wins, too, with six Super Bowl rings under his belt.

The 43-year-old quarterback isn't done, either. He's going for ring number seven at Super Bowl LV, right here in Tampa Bay. But before he makes his 10th appearance at the big game, let's look back at his Super Bowl history.

2002: Super Bowl XXXVI

 A relatively unknown Tom Brady led the Patriots to a 20–17 win over the St. Louis Rams at the Louisiana Superdome earning the franchise it's first ever world title. Brady only threw one touchdown pass, eight yards to wide receiver David Patten in the second quarter.

A pair of Super Bowl winning teams that launched dynasties in San Francisco and New England highlighted the list of the NFL's greatest teams, numbers 31-100. The Patriots won a surprise title in 2001 after the untested Brady took over from the injured Drew Bledsoe early in the season. New England needed a favorable ruling and dramatic kick by Adam Vinatieri to win the "Tuck Rule" game against Oakland, won at Pittsburgh in the AFC championship game and slowed down the dynamic Rams offense for the franchise's first title. That team ranked 51st. (AP Photo/Doug Mills, File)

Brady led New England to it's second Super Bowl title in three years as the team beat the Carolina Panthers 32-29. Tom Brady calmly drove the Patriots into field goal range allowing Adam Vinatieri to kick a game-winning, 41-yard field goal with four seconds remaining.

2017: Super Bowl LI

In one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history, the Patriots came back to win 34-28 against the Atlanta Falcons. New England found themselves trailing 28-3 late in the third quarter when they kicked it into high gear, sending the game into overtime and ultimately emerging victorious.

2018: Super Bowl LII

Brady and the Patriots returned to the Super Bowl in 2018 for a much more disappointing ending. The Philadelphia Eagles beat New England 41-33 in Minneapolis. Brady's 505 yards and three touchdowns weren't enough to bring home another championship.

Brady found himself back at the Super Bowl for the third year in a row, this time becoming the first player in NFL history to win six Super Bowl rings.
