Tom Brady comments on playing future after latest Super Bowl triumph


Tom Brady says winning a record sixth Super Bowl won’t alter his plans of continuing his incredible NFL career with the New England Patriots.

Brady became the first player to win the Lombardi Trophy on six occasions as the Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta.

The 41-year-old quarterback has previously stated his intention to go on for a 20th season and his latest Super Bowl victory hasn’t changed those plans.

"It doesn't change anything,” Brady told CBS Sports.

“I can't wait to spend some time with my family and my kids and my wife, I couldn't do it without their support, it's just been a great year.

"I'm so happy for my teammates, this is a dream come true for all of us."

In the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in NFL history, Brady hailed the Patriots’ defense as they successfully nullified the Rams’ offense in the 10-point triumph.

"It was an unbelievable year,” he added.

"We fought through it more so than anything, it's unbelievable to win this game, they played so well, the Rams defense they played their butts off, what a defense, they had a great plan, they made it tough on every play.

"We just kept fighting and finally got a touchdown and the defense played the best game of the year.

"We've been this far and lost which is really tough, we had a lot of resolve the last couple of weeks. I wish we'd played a little better on offense but we won, I can't believe it."

Brady - who turns 42 in August - was selected by the Patriots with pick 199 in the 2000 NFL draft.
