Tom Brady's record against every NFL team
*This article has since been updated to reflect Tom Brady's record against each NFL team as of Jan. 17, 2021.
On Thursday Night Football, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady made the bad kind of history, when he fell to the Chicago Bears for the first time in his career.
Brady previously owned a perfect 5-0 record in games against Chicago, all while he played for the New England Patriots. His lone loss occurred against a familiar foe in Nick Foles, who beat Brady with the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
The Bears are not the only franchise that has struggled to defeat Brady. Four other teams are still winless against the six-time Super Bowl champ. Of those four, Brady faces two of them later in the 2020 regular season. In Week 13, he improved his record against the Minnesota Vikings to 6-0 and beat the Atlanta Falcons (0-8 against Brady) in Week 15 and Week 17.
Brady is also 5-0 against the Dallas Cowboys and had gone 4-0 as a Patriot against his new team, Tampa Bay.
For his career, Brady is 230-69 as a starter in the regular season and 32-11 in 43 playoff appearances.
Below is a breakdown of Brady’s regular-season and postseason records against each NFL franchise, plus a few fun facts related to some of his most memorable matchups.

Brady vs. the Arizona Cardinals
Brady has only faced the Cardinals twice, the fewest amount of games he has played against any one NFL team, other than the Patriots.
In 2004, he and the Patriots bested Josh McCown and Arizona, 23-12. He lost his other meeting, 20-18, in 2012 against former Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb.
The Patriots also defeated Arizona in 2008, while Brady was sidelined with an ACL injury, and again in 2016, when Jimmy Garoppolo stepped in at quarterback while Brady was suspended.
Brady vs. the Carolina Panthers
Before coming to Tampa, Brady owned a losing regular-season record against Carolina. Early in the 2020 season, he evened the series 3-3 with a 31-17 win. In the second meeting of the season, Brady crushed Carolina, 46-23, in Week 10.
In Brady's lone postseason meeting with the Panthers, he earned his second Super Bowl win, when he beat Jake Delhomme and Carolina in 2004.
Brady vs. the Denver Broncos
In Week 3 of the 2020 season, Brady topped Denver, 28-10, to bring his regular-season series record to 8-6.
His track record against Denver in the playoffs is another story. In four postseason games, Brady has won just once, in the Divisional Round against quarterback Tim Tebow in 2012.
In 2006, he lost to Jake Plummer and the Broncos in the Divisional Round, and fell twice to Peyton Manning's Broncos in the postseason, in the 2014 and 2016 AFC Championship Games.
Brady vs. the Indianapolis Colts
Brady vs. Manning may be the most famous quarterback battle in NFL history. While Manning got the better of Brady in the playoffs during Manning's time in Denver, Brady's Patriots consistently beat down Manning in Indy.
Brady won six straight against Manning's Colts, from 2001-05. Two of those victories included an AFC Championship Game win and Divisional Round win.
The Colts reeled off three consecutive victories from there, including a win against Brady's Patriots in the AFC Championship Game in 2007.
For his career, Brady was 8-4 against Manning's Colts, and 11-3 overall against Indianapolis in the regular season.
In the postseason, Brady is 4-1 against Indy. Two of those wins came against Manning, while the other two were against Andrew Luck.
Brady vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars
Of his eight victories over Jacksonville, two came against current Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, while he was the Jags' quarterback.
Brady vs. the Kansas City Chiefs
Brady squared off against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on Nov. 29 and fell to the reigning Super Bowl MVP for the second time in his career.
Brady last beat Mahomes in an instant classic, when the Patriots downed Kansas City in overtime of the AFC Championship Game in 2019.
Brady vs. the Las Vegas Raiders
There may be no fanbase that hates Brady more because of one infamous officiating call that will forever go down in NFL lore.
Known today as "The Tuck Rule Game," a second-seeded New England faced No. 3 seed Oakland in the 2002 AFC Divisional Round. Late in the fourth quarter, with New England down three, Brady appeared to fumble the ball, which Oakland recovered. However, a controversial ruling allowed New England to keep the ball and march down the field to kick a game-tying field goal.
The game went to overtime, New England won, and Brady went on to claim his first Super Bowl title against the Saint Louis Rams.
Brady vs. the Miami Dolphins
At 23-12, Brady's dozen losses to Miami are the most he has recorded against any NFL team.
Brady vs. the Minnesota Vikings
In Week 14, Brady kept his undefeated record against Minnesota intact. In a 26-14 victory, he threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns, including one to former Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski.
Brady vs. the New Orleans Saints
While Brady is 4-3 against New Orleans in the regular season, he is 3-5 overall against Drew Brees. Two of Brees' victories over Brady came as quarterback of the San Diego Chargers in 2002 and 2005.
Brady lost the 2020 season opener to the Saints and was destroyed by Brees and company in Week 9 in a 38-3 thumping in Tampa. He got his revenge in the NFL Divisional Round this year, when the Bucs downed the Saints 30-20 on Jan. 17, 2021.
Brady vs. the New York Giants
Brady is a dominant 5-1 against the Giants in the regular season, but he lost both times he faced New York and quarterback Eli Manning in the Super Bowl.
Brady vs. the Philadelphia Eagles
Brady won his third Super Bowl against the Eagles in 2005 and lost one Super Bowl to Philly in 2017.
Brady vs. the Los Angeles Rams
Brady’s first and most recent Super Bowl victories occurred against the Rams.
Brady vs. the Tennessee Titans
In the 2019 Wild Card Round, Tennessee handed Brady his most recent playoff loss, which also marked his final game as a Patriot.
