3 NFL teams that never ended up beating Tom Brady

Tom Brady spent 23 seasons in the NFL and faced off against all 32 teams during his career. He has played against every team multiple times, with the exception of the New England Patriots, who he has faced only once.

He spent his first 20 years with the Patriots, making it impossible to play against them. He completed the list and faced every NFL team when he finally played against the Patriots while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the final three years of his career.

The incredible longevity and consistent dominance of his career have led Tom Brady to be in the NFL record books for many different reasons. He is one of only four quarterbacks in NFL history, including Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees, to have defeated all 32 teams at some point in their careers.


Another amazing distinction for Tom Brady is that no NFL team has recorded a winning career record against him, when also including the NFL Playoffs. He is the only qualified quarterback in NFL history who can say that about their entire career.

In addition to defeating all 32 NFL teams, Brady has also lost to 29 of them at some point in his career, which can mostly be credited to his longevity. This means that three teams have failed to ever record a victory against Tom Brady in their franchise history.

#1 New England Patriots (0-1)

The New England Patriots should get somewhat of a pass for never having defeated Brady. They only got one shot to do so, unlike every other NFL team that had multiple chances.

The lone game occurred during the 2021 NFL season, which Brady's second year with the Buccaneers. The Patriots lost to their former quarterback by a 19-17 score.


#2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the second-fewest number of years to record a victory against Tom Brady, but that should come as no excuse. They had four chances to defeat him while he was still with the Patriots, but were unsuccessful in all attempts.

This is one of the many reasons why they were happy to have him on their team for the final three years of his career. Helping them win a Super Bowl ring is another one.

#3 Minnesota Vikings (0-6)

The Minnesota Vikings hold the unfortunate record of being the team that Tom Brady remained undefeated against in most games. He played against the Vikings six times during his career and won all of them.

Five of the contests occurred while he was with the Patriots, with one final victory during the 2020 NFL season, Tom Brady's first with the Buccaneers.
