The Tom Brady redemption tour was in full effect on Sunday during the AFC Championship game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The future Hall of Famer threw for a franchise playoff-best 384 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-17 rout over the visiting Steelers.

With the win, Brady set an NFL record for most playoff wins (24). Incredibly, no other quarterback has even participated in that many postseason games.

And despite sitting out four games at the start of the season for his “role” in the “Deflategate” scandal, the 17-year veteran made his case on why he should be the league’s MVP with another incredible game while carrying the Pats to yet another title game appearance.

Brady’s favorite target was Chris Hogan who came into the game as a relatively nobody. The four-year veteran came in averaging just two catches per game before erupting for a franchise playoff-best nine catches for 180 yards and broke the previous record which was held by Deion Branch in 2006.

Now in his first year with New England, the Monmouth graduate is headed to the Super Bowl. Not bad for a guy that only played only one season of college football. The wide receiver was a college lacrosse star before making the move over.

New England will play the Atlanta Falcons for all of the marbles in two weeks (Feb. 5) after the Falcons blitzed Green Bay, 44-21, in its last home game in the Georgia Dome.

Here are some of the top highlights from the game.
