Is Tom Brady the oldest Super Bowl quarterback?

At 41 years, 184 days, Tom Brady is the oldest quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl.

Sunday’s win against the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta gives him his sixth championship and the title of oldest QB to win the game.

Brady dethroned Peyton Manning as the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl. Manning won a Super Bowl as the leader of the Broncos in 2015 at 39 days, 320 days old.

Neither Brady nor Manning are the oldest players to take part in a Super Bowl.

Former Colts kicker Matt Stover, who participated in the 2010 game at the age of 42 years and 11 days, is oldest player to ever play in the Super Bowl.
