Tom Brady has been a thorn in the side of the Minnesota Vikings throughout his entire career, but now he has hung up his cleats for good.

Some people call Tom Brady the greatest quarterback to ever play in the NFL. While that title is still up for argument, there is no denying that he seemed to know how to beat the Minnesota Vikings on a regular basis.

In fact, the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers superstar ended his pro football career by never losing to the Vikings, finishing with a 6-0 record against the purple and gold.

The most recent loss came in Week 14 of the 2020 season when Brady completed 15-of-23 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions and a rating of 120.9 on the way to a 26-14 victory over Minnesota.

It’s a bit surprising that Brady only faced the Vikings six times in his career. Since Brady played a lot of his career in the AFC East, they only played each other once every four years with normal scheduling and on occasion with divisional placement.

Not being able to beat Tom Brady isn’t something to be ashamed of. He has dominated several teams in his career Here are four other teams that never could get a victory against Brady and their final record against “Tom Terrific”.

  • Atlanta Falcons: 10-0 (one playoff win)
