FOXBOROUGH – The AFC Divisional Round game on Saturday between the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans will set an NFL record for the biggest age gap between rival starting quarterbacks, since 17 years and 88 days separate Tom Brady and Marcus Mariota.
However, age is not something Brady, 40, is thinking about.
These are fun games to play in. It does not matter if you’re young or old, it’s a great feeling to be in this place,” Brady said. “I know we’re excited, we’ve had a good week.”

It’s been 26 years since Steve DeBerg defeated Todd Marinovich in the Kansas City Chiefs win, 10-6, in the Wild Card Round on December 28, 1991. That game had established the biggest age gap between two starting pins. (15 years, 166 days) in a playoff game, with DeBerg playing at 37 years of age that campaign.
As for the duel between Brady and Mariota, it is the second time they have faced each other, although Mariota hurt her knee at the beginning of her first duel – a 33-16 triumph for the Patriots on December 20, 2015 – and only participated. in 19 moves that day.
