Tom Brady had a terrible weekend.
His Tampa Bay Buccaneers managed to score zero points in a 9-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints, raising further questions as to why the Saints are so dominant against Brady’s Bucs.
But that is a story for another time.
Brady had an awful game, but it does not take away from his entire body of work this season.
His play has earned him a Pro Bowl berth for the first time since 2018.
Naturally, that means Brady has set yet another NFL record with the honor.

More NFL History From Brady
It is hard to think that there was ever a year where the great Brady was not in the Pro Bowl.
He did make it every year from 2009-2018, but has missed on occasion for one reason or another.
Still, 15 times is a legendary number.
Manning is the next closest quarterback with 14, while Drew Brees made 13.
In terms of active quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers leads the way with nine.
That is still impressive, but he will not touch Brady’s mark.
Another day, another milestone for the 🐐. @TomBrady

Brady could even add to his total if he continues to play in 2022 and beyond.
At that point he may just automatically receive the honor, barring a horrific campaign.
Brady once again has no intention of actually playing in the Pro Bowl.
His goal is to win the Super Bowl and a shutout loss against the Saints may only motivate him further, which is bad news for the rest of the NFL.
Counting him out after one bad game would be silly, especially for a player who has now made 15 Pro Bowls.
