Brady's postseason dominance over Reid demonstrated in one stat originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Tom Brady owns many of the best and most unique records in NFL postseason history. And ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, he will have a chance to add onto another unique milestone.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Brady has logged a 3-0 postseason record against Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. He is the only quarterback ever to beat the same coach three times in the playoffs with one of those victories coming in a Super Bowl.

It's no surprise to see Brady have another unique postseason stat like this, and it just goes to show how strong Brady has been against Reid's coaching in previous seasons.

Of course, it is worth noting that one of the reasons that Brady has this achievement is due to Reid's longevity and sustained success. Few coaches make consistent trips to the playoffs in the parity-driven NFL. Even fewer get a chance to coach for more than a few years at the NFL level.

How Tom Brady has fared against Reid, Mahomes in his career

Reid has long been one of the league's better coaches. The fact that he has met Brady in the postseason three times with two different franchises in both the NFC and AFC is an achievement in and of itself.

That said, the postseason stats obviously favor Brady both recently and historically. Just a couple of years ago during the 2018 postseason, Brady's New England Patriots dispatched the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. And back in 2005, Brady beat Reid's Eagles in the Super Bowl.

However, it's worth noting that Brady is 3-4 against Reid's Chiefs, including a 2-2 record against quarterback Patrick Mahomes, while Brady was a sparkling 4-0 against Reid's Eagles. So, while the 7-4 record as a whole looks positive, it's been closer to even of late, especially in the regular season.

The Bucs-Chiefs Super Bowl is truly anyone's game. Brady will need to be at his best to bring home the Lombardi Trophy and keep his perfect postseason record against Reid intact.

And if he does that, he will create yet another milestone that could prove insurmountable for future generations of NFL quarterbacks.
