Tom Brady Named NFL MVP Ahead of Super Bowl LII

Tom Brady will lace up his Under Armour cleats tonight and hit the U.S. Bank Stadium field in Minneapolis against the Philadelphia Eagles to try to win his sixth career Super Bowl. But before the big game, the legendary quarterback received yet another monumental career honor.

The leader of the New England Patriots was named the 2017 NFL Most Valuable Player on Saturday, the third time in his storied career that he has won the award. (The other years were 2007 and 2010.)

Brady threw for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns during the season, leading New England to a 13-3 regular season record. The quarterback posted these stellar numbers at 40 years old in his 18th season in the league.

The 2018 Super Bowl is a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005, when Brady and the Patriots bested the Eagles, 24-21. During the win, Brady — like many of the players on the field that game — wore Nike cleats.
