Tom Brady celebrates booking Super Bowl spot with savage Instagram post

AFC Championship - New England Patriots v Kansas City Chiefs

Tom Brady further cemented his legacy as arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history this past weekend in the AFC Championship game.

The New England Patriots needed overtime to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 37-31 in the AFC title game, booking their spot in the Super Bowl for the third year in a row.

Brady has now taken the Patriots to the Super Bowl for the ninth time in his career, which is more appearances in the big game than any other team in the NFL.

He celebrated the huge win as he walked back to the team's coach in Kansas City alongside his tight end Rob Gronkowski.

He then posted the savage video onto his Instagram account, which also included footage of Rex Burkhead's overtime game-winning touchdown all with the song 'Bad Boy For Life' by Diddy playing in the background.

Brady was outperformed by his counterpart on the Chiefs in Patrick Mahomes, but it was the five-time Super Bowl Champion that came out of the game with the all-important win thanks to a superior running game.

The five-time Super Bowl Champion said after the game, via ESPN: "The odds were stacked against us. It hasn't been that way for us for a while. It certainly was this year. We started off so slow."

He added: "One play here, one play there, could have changed everything. But that's football. I'm proud of our team.

"When you have 70,000 people cheering against you, it's pretty sweet when you win on the road. That's a hard thing to do in the NFL. It's certainly a hard thing to do against the first-ranked team in the conference who has been playing great all year, and has certainly been playing great at home.

"We knew it was going to take a lot. It took some great plays and some great conversions, and just proud of us getting the job done."

The Patriots quarterback finished completing 30-of-46 passing attempts for 348 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. The Chiefs quarterback meanwhile finished completing 16-of-31 passing attempts for 295 yards and three touchdowns.

Patriots' running backs Sony Michel and Burkhead rushed for two touchdowns each, with Michel rushing for 113 yards off 29 carries while Burkhead had 41 rushing yards off 12 carries.

In two weeks time, New England will face off against the Los Angeles Rams and another young quarterback in Jared Goff in the Super Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
