New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady left hugs coach Bill Belichick after the AFC championship NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday Jan. 21 2018 in Foxborough Mass. The Patriots won 24-20

This year the 40-year-old Brady completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,577 yards, 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Brady's resume presently possesses one Comeback Player of the Year, three regular-season MVPs, four Super Bowl MVPs and five Lombardi Trophies - with a chance for a sixth on Sunday. He's faced a myriad of hard scenarios in the championship game, including last year's 25-point hole the Patriots dug out of to beat the Falcons. Barry Bonds was 40 years, 4 months when he won baseball's MVP award in 2004.

Brady also sits atop the list of National Football League players with the most Super Bowl appearances with eight Super Bowls.

"Why does everyone want me to retire so bad?" Brady said. "I don't get it".

"It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had". This might sound unusual, but it really was like this light flicked on inside my head that day, right there on my sofa in Leicester - and all of a sudden, I said, 'You know what? I'm not thinking about retirement.

Like the 25-point second-half deficit Brady rallied the Patriots from in last year's Super Bowl or the 10-point fourth-quarter hole he dug them out of against Jacksonville in the AFC championship last week. Rarely has schadenfreude - pleasure in another's misery - been so enthusiastically expressed, fueled by contempt for the Patriots' perennial success and the team's kill-stare coach Bill Belichick; but mostly it was Brady, who, no matter what else he does will always be a cheater in the minds of many football fans. It may have been his third time winning the award, but it was the Patriot's first time receiving the award since the installment of the NFL Honors awards show.

Assange loses bid to have arrest warrant dropped
Despite the fact that the Swedish case has been dropped, the British authorities consider that he breached his bail conditions. Earlier this month, Ecuador granted citizenship to Assange after officials decided his living situation was unsustainable.

"To be able to that, at this age, to be able to come into this season, with some players that he hadn't played with before".

New England has also gotten a strong season from receiver Brandin Cook after acquiring him from New Orleans this offseason.

Saints running back Alvin Kamara was named offensive rookie of the year. He led the team with 896 yards rushing and six rushing touchdowns. After 5 Super Bowl wins and 17 years of sustained greatness, his resume is unmatched in history. The future Hall of Famer is five for seven in his career in Super Bowls. The former basketball player made it look easy, as he became the first quarterback to pull in a reception in the Super Bowl.

And Brady has put huge sums of cash to help excellent causes during his time in the league, this season donating $100,000 (£71,000) to JJ Watt's relief fund after Hurricane Harvey devastated Watt's adopted hometown of Houston, Texas.
