When Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts take the area on Sunday, they may have the largest age difference ever between starting quarterbacks in an NFL postseason recreation.
Brady turned 44 on August 3 and Hurts turned 23 on August 7, so the age difference between them is nearly precisely 21 years. That’s by far the greatest age difference ever between playoff quarterbacks.
The earlier document was set by Brady and Patrick Mahomes, who is 18 years youthful than Brady. The Brady-Mahomes matchup has occurred twice in the postseason, in the Super Bowl final yr and the AFC Championship Game three years in the past.
The document for the largest age difference between regular-season starting quarterbacks was set two weeks in the past, when Brady and the Buccaneers confronted Zach Wilson and the Jets. Wilson was born on Brady’s twenty second birthday. The second-largest age hole between starting quarterbacks in the common season was set this yr by Brady and Justin Fields, the third-largest is Brady and Mac Jones and the fourth-largest is Brady and Hurts.
