Tom Brady jumped from the AFC to the NFC last season and not much changed.
He rolled through the competition en route to winning a Super Bowl over the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now in the NFC’s final four along with the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, and Los Angeles Rams.
There is still the possibility Brady can go up against Aaron Rodgers in the NFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season.
If that does happen, a personal record between the two will be on the line.

Both Brady and Rodgers are sitting with 10 career playoff wins against NFC teams, even though this is the former’s second season as an NFC quarterback.
That brings to light, not that anyone needed a reminder, just how dominant he is no matter who he plays.
A Shocking Stat Explained
The framing of the stat in the above tweet makes it seem like Brady has picked up his 10 postseason wins against NFC teams in two seasons.
That is not the case, as it takes into account the six NFC teams he has defeated in Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.
This reminder makes it even more impressive because Rodgers automatically gets an NFC opponent every postseason.
Brady had to reach the Super Bowl to get one in the past and he took down six on the game’s highest stage.
This is another subtle note about how it is pretty much impossible to compare any career to Brady’s.

Rodgers is an all-time great and has one Super Bowl title to his name.
Brady has seven and is seeking an eighth this postseason.
Even winning just one cemented Rodgers’ legacy.
Trying to compare any other quarterback to Brady usually results in seeing a shocking stat like this to remind everyone he is the GOAT.
