The anticipation for the Super Bowl has been building up all week. Players from the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots have done a number of interviews with multiple news outlets. But before we get to the most anticipated game of the year, we have awards night for the NFL. Tom Brady, at 40 years-old, was named the MVP of the NFL for the third time.

Brady, once again, had a solid year. He threw for 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns with only 8 interceptions, completed over 66% of his passes and had a rating of 102.8. This is his third season in a row to have over a 100 rating. Brady play phenomenal all season long, helping give the Patriots a chance to win back-to-back Super Bowls for the second time with Brady under center.

There was some speculation this week if Brady was going to win the MVP. At a press conference, someone spotted a gentleman holding what looked to be Brady’s acceptance speech for the award.

Brady will play in the Super Bowl for a record eighth time this Sunday. It has not been an easy road for the Patriots. They have faced controversy and adversity all season long. If Brady can find a way to overcome a stout Eagles defense, then he will win his sixth Super Bowl. The action begins Sunday, February 4 at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
