Tom Brady is 43? Washington coach Ron Rivera couldn't tell by watching tape originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Father Time still has no idea where Tom Brady lives.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is still a top-tier quarterback in his 21st NFL season.

He threw for 4,633 yards with 40 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 16 games. Brady became the first 40-year-old player to throw 40-plus touchdowns in a single season, and he also broke Peyton Manning's record for the most TD passes in a single season with a new team.

Bruce Arians has great response to Chase Young calling out Tom Brady

Brady and the Bucs will continue their journey to Super Bowl LV on Saturday night when they go on the road to play the NFC East champion Washington Football Team.

Washington head coach Ron Rivera was asked about Brady during his Tuesday press conference, and he claims to not have known the veteran quarterback was 43 years old. He certainly didn't get that impression from watching Brady this season.

Could Rivera just be trying to throw kind words at Brady after Washington rookie defensive end Chase Young provided the six-time Super Bowl champion with bulletin board material earlier this week? 

Maybe.

Should Tom Brady use Bucs' Super Bowl odds as bulletin board material?

Following Washington's division title-clinching win against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, Young was heard yelling, "Tom Brady, I’m coming. I want Tom!” as he walked off the field.

Giving Brady bulletin board material often goes poorly for his opponents, especially in the playoffs. Young and the Washington defense must play a near-perfect game Saturday night to take down Brady and end his pursuit of a seventh Lombardi Trophy.

Be sure to catch Tampa Bay take on Washington in an NFC Wild Card matchup Saturday night at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC10 Boston. Pregame coverage starts at 7:30 p.m. ET with Football Night in America.
