NFL Network's Tom Pelissero had the vote count:
Brady (40 years, 184 days) also became the oldest player to take home the NFL's most prestigious individual honor, per ESPN's Field Yates:
In his 18th season, the five-time Super Bowl champion looked sharp as ever as he led the Patriots to a 13-3 record, the AFC's No. 1 seed and their second consecutive conference title.
Appearing in all 16 games, Brady completed 66.3 percent of his passes for a league-leading 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns while tossing eight interceptions with a 102.8 passer rating. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (34) and Wentz (33) were the only signal-callers who threw for more touchdowns in 2017.
And as NFL.com's Gil Brandt noted, Brady "carried one of the least-talented Patriots teams he's played with to the Super Bowl."
With another MVP in tow, Brady will try to add to his hardware stockpile Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles as he eyes a sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy and fifth Super Bowl MVP.
