Tom Brady retires from the NFL having started a record 381 games at quarterback, including the playoffs. His teams won 286 of those games, and Brady played well in almost all of those wins. There were a lot of memorable games throughout his 23-year career in the NFL, but which were his best performances?
To figure out Brady's most valuable games, we need a stat that balances efficiency and volume. We'll want to consider how well Brady played against the best pass defenses and the changing standards for offense in the NFL, as passing the ball was a lot easier in Brady's three Tampa Bay seasons compared to his early years with the New England Patriots 20 years ago.
