Tom Brady looking to surpass Eli Manning, write more NFL playoff history tonight

Tom Brady will have a chance to set a new record for the most playoff wins as an underdog. On Monday Night Football, Brady will try to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a win over the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are currently favored over the Buccaneers by three points.

As a starting quarterback in the games where he has been the underdog, Brady is 7-3. Eli Manning also had seven such wins as he and Brady are tied for the most such wins as a starting quarterback. Brady has already broken many records and tonight he will again be looking to beat the odds and come out victorious.

Brady has never lost against the Cowboys

Throughout his rich career, there is one team to which Brady has never lost - the Cowboys. Against the Cowboys, Brady owns a 7-0 record. However, Brady insisted last week that he respects the Cowboys.

"Yeah, they've got a great team. I've played them quite a bit over the years and I have a lot of respect for the organization, their history, a lot of great players" Brady said. Meanwhile, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was also asked about Brady's perfect record against the Buccaneers.

"When you really think about it, we're not playing Brady. We're playing Tampa Bay, the team. And it's conceivable that we could make Brady not play well and get our tails beat by the rest of the team. And I'm not trying to be cute.

But we've got to go play the entire team. And this Brady thing has got to be sensitive. I know it's there and I respect that. Gives us a challenge to do something we haven't done before and that's beat Tom Brady," Jones said. In Week 1 of the 2022 season, the Buccaneers beat the Cowboys 19-3 in Dallas.

Tonight, the Buccaneers are hosting the Cowboys as they will be looking to beat Dallas for the second time this year and progress into the divisional round.
