Road to Greatness: The Life of Tom Brady

Tom Brady's road to greatness has been a long and eventful one.

He made his way to the NFL after the Patriots drafted him in the sixth round in 2000. Since then, Brady and Bill Belichick have taken the Patriots to a record seven Super Bowls. A stunning comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI gave both five rings, more than any other quarterback or head coach in history.

Patriots fans will need to look past a 16-year haze of celebrations, accolades, hard-fought games and legal battles, and remember Brady's humble beginnings as a late draft pick and fourth-string quarterback, to appreciate the surprising, unlikely dynasty New England has become.
