Tom Brady and his New England Patriots have been dealing with the overwhelming hype surrounding the New York Giants top-notch, powerful defensive line throughout Super Bowl week.

Yet when it's all said and done, it will be the artistry of Brady at the QB position and his dominance as of late that will have him and his Patriots on top of the world for the fourth time in 10 years.

When it comes to winning football games, there may not be another QB in the league who is as "cool under pressure" as the man wearing No. 12 in New England.

Brady, a three-time Super Bowl winner and two-time Super Bowl MVP recipient, knows a thing or two about winning the games that matter. In fact, he is a mind-boggling David Tyree-catch short of winning in all four Super Bowl appearances he has made.

Throughout his career, Brady has won games like these with his unmeasurable clutch factor, his ability to seize the moment and take care of business.

Just how clutch is the Patriots' starting QB?

Brady has recorded 35 game-winning drives and engineered 25 fourth-quarter comebacks for his career. He has won all three Super Bowl games in game-winning-drive fashion, with the win over the Carolina Panthers in 2004 also featuring a fourth-quarter comeback.

Outside of his experience and ability to assemble late drives, Brady has been playing impressive football during the team's 10-game win streak and counting.

In those 10 games, Brady has recorded 25 touchdowns and just five interceptions while also throwing for at least 300 yards in eight of the 10 contests.

Six of the 25 touchdowns came in a victory over the Denver Broncos in the divisional round, as Brady took care of one of the better defenses in the NFL this season.

The numbers do the talking to say the least.

With the help of RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis and the TE duo of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to move the chains, Brady will be able to take advantage of an unproven Giants secondary throughout this contest.

In spite of the tremendous hype around the Patriots needing revenge and this Giants defensive line, the pressure will only continue to mount. As cool as the other side of the pillow, Brady will have no problem carrying the chip on his shoulder and maintaining his composure on Super Bowl Sunday.
