Tom Brady has finally decided to hang it up after 22 fantastic seasons in the NFL, most of which were spent with the New England Patriots. During that time, TB12 became the first player to win seven championships, embarking on a streak of success that may never be equaled.
Six of Brady’s seven championships came with the Patriots, who only had a handful of previous appearances thanks to the services of Steve Grogan, Tony Eason, and Drew Bledsoe. Brady helped drag this franchise out of mediocrity and into a spot among the league’s elite.
The Patriots will be forever indebted to Brady, as he was arguably the main reason for a two-decade run that saw New England get to the Super Bowl nine times while winning the title on six occasions. If not for Eli Manning and Nick Foles, Brady would have even more rings on his fingers.
While it might be tough to rank these six victories given how they were all equally important in the grand scope of the franchise, some of these games were clearly more impactful than others. Which of Brady’s six championships with the Patriots stand out above the rest?

6. Super Bowl LIII vs. Los Angeles Rams
Brady might have won Super Bowl MVP in this game, but even the staunchest Brady supporter has to admit this was not his finest hour. Wade Phillips shut this offense down for most of the game, and some poor decisions from an overwhelmed Jared Goff helped seal this game.
Brady threw for 262 yards and no touchdowns while getting picked off once. Sony Michel actually helped generate most of the offense, as he ran for 94 yards on just 18 carries while scoring the game’s only touchdown. With Bill Belichick shutting down Todd Gurley, victory was assured.
Tom Brady and the Patriots won a slugfest against the Rams.
13 points is not a performance that the offense should’ve been happy with, but Brady put together a classic drive that ended with a beautiful throw to Rob Gronkowski and the Michel touchdown. Goff looked lost for most of the game, and that had to be one of the main reasons Sean McVay soured on him.
In terms of watchability, the quality of his opponent, and the impact on his legacy, this win might not mean as much as the other five. Still, Brady found a way to beat a DC in Phillips that gave him lots of trouble over the years, and that should count for something.
