Fans saluted Tom Brady’s achievement as he left the field on Sunday night.

Passing Montana seemed to be significant to Brady. “I grew up a 49ers fan,’’ Brady said. ‘‘Joe Montana and Steve Young ... those guys are in another class.

Most playoff victories among starting quarterbacks:

QB (team)Wins
Tom Brady (NE)17
Joe Montana (SF, KC)16
Terry Bradshaw (Pit.)14
John Elway (Den.)14
Brett Favre (GB, Min.)12
Troy Aikman (Dal.)11
Roger Staubach (Dal.)11
