Brady and the Bucs earned their spot in the NFC title game in Green Bay after beating Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints last week. In his first season with the Bucs, Brady threw 40 touchdowns (his second-highest single-season career total), helping Tampa improve from 7-9 a year ago to 11-5 this season.
