Breaking news from HERO Sports: The New England Patriots have a pretty solid quarterback lining up behind center on Sundays. But for all the incredible Tom Brady stats out there, from 4 Super Bowl MVP awards to 13 Pro Bowl selections, a new stat was brought to the sporting world’s attention today that is nearly impossible to believe.

It’s astounding because it will mean that over the course of his 18-year career, two-thirds of it have resulted in him getting as far as the AFC title game.
To give you some perspective, here are the conference title appearances by other legendary and Hall of Fame QBs.
