Brady plays down his perfect record against favored Cowboys

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Tom Brady is not concerned about being a home underdog in the NFL playoffs for the first time in his career.

After all, no one has enjoyed more postseason success than the seven-time Super Bowl champion, who begins his quest for a record in the eighth ring when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-9) host the Dallas Cowboys (12-5) in an NFC Wildcard matchup Monday night.

Brady owns a number of playoff records, including most games played (47), wins (35), passing yards (13,049), touchdown passes (86), and Super Bowl appearances (10).

The 45-year-old quarterback, making the playoffs for the 14th straight season, has something else going for him:

The Cowboys — 2½-point favorites according to FanDuel Sportsbook — have never beaten the five-time Super Bowl MVP.

Not that Brady thinks career victories or a 7-0 win against the American team, including a 19-3 opening win in Dallas four months ago, will have any bearing on their final clash at Raymond James Stadium.
