He’s won seven Super Bowls in ten appearances and is a constant fixture during the NFL playoffs.
But while he’s had success against almost everyone, he hasn’t fared well against the Manning brothers, Peyton and Eli.

In this tweet by NFL on CBS, they revealed that Brady’s postseason record against other quarterbacks is 33-7.
However, he’s only 2-5 against the Mannings.
Despite that record, it’s great to know that the 44-year-old quarterback is a good sport when he guested on the brother’s alternate broadcast of Monday Night Football.
Brady’s Losses To The Mannings
His most memorable defeats against the brothers came in the Super Bowl against Eli and the New York Giants.
The younger Manning had a miraculous play in Super Bowl XLII wherein he avoided the sack and found David Tyree for the completion.
A few plays later, Plaxico Burress sealed the Giants’ victory and the end of the New England Patriots’ quest for a perfect season.
Four years later, Eli had a repeat against Brady, thanks to a spectacular catch by Mario Manningham.
Peyton never defeated Brady in the Super Bowl, given that they played in the same conference.
However, their rivalry had been one of the league’s best for the better part of the 2000s and 2010s.
The older of the Manning brothers still had success by winning Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts and Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos.
But Peyton had to overcome Brady before getting his first Super Bowl victory.
The Patriots had the opportunity to give Manning another disappointing playoff loss.
However, Colts cornerback Marlin Jackson intercepted Brady’s pass to seal their victory in the AFC Championship Game.
