BRADY BUNCH OF RECORDS: On Sunday, New England quarterback TOM BRADY passed for 320 yards, his sixth career 300-yard passing game in the playoffs. Only PEYTON MANNING (eight) has more 300-yard passing games than Brady in postseason history (Pro Football Hall of Famer JOE MONTANA, six; KURT WARNER, six).

Brady (5,949) surpassed Manning (5,679), Montana (5,772) and BRETT FAVRE (5,855) for the most postseason passing yards in league annals.

A VALUABLE MATCH-UP: The 2012 AFC Championship Game marked the second time in NFL history a Super Bowl MVP quarterback (TOM BRADY, XXXVIII and XXXVI) and MVP linebacker (RAY LEWIS, XXXV) played each other in a Conference Championship Game. The only other occurrence was when the two players faced off in last year’s AFC Championship Game.

On two previous occasions, Super Bowl offensive and defensive MVPs other than a quarterback and linebacker have met in a conference championship game or Super Bowl. In Super Bowl XIII (1979), Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY WHITE (XII) and HARVEY MARTIN (XII) of the Dallas Cowboys matched up against Pro Football Hall of Famers FRANCO HARRIS (IX) and LYNN SWANN (X) of the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the 2009 AFC Championship Game, Lewis competed against HINES WARD (XL) of the Steelers.
