Tom Brady was in his second season as a pro when he won his first playoff game.

Now as a 13-year veteran, the New England Patriots star needs one more victory to break a tie with Joe Montana for most in the postseason by a quarterback.

He'd love to get his 17th on Sunday against the Houston Texans, not just to reach the milestone but to also advance to the AFC championship game.

As usual, Brady stressed Wednesday that it's not a one-man show and that he's been fortunate to be with the Patriots and have a chance for so many wins.

The Patriots (12-4) beat the Texans (13-4) on Dec. 10, a 42-14 victory on the same field where the rematch will take place.
