Patriots owner Robert Kraft loves his quarterback, Tom Brady.

"Definitely the greatest player of all-time — not just quarterback in my opinion," Kraft said in an interview with ESPN . "Because he's such a leader in the locker room. For someone double the age of some of the players to be able to lead like that, and connect like that, and have the work ethic that he has, and at the same time so pleasant to be around — I'm really the luckiest guy in the world."

Brady holds the NFL record with five Super Bowl titles. He has also been to more than any other quarterback (8).

He sits fourth all time in passing yards and third in passing touchdowns and also leads all quarterbacks with a .775 career winning percentage.

He has made the Pro Bowl a record 14 times and won three MVPs.

"He's a genuine person. He's kind. He's polite to everyone. He's a very caring person," Kraft said. "At the same time no one works harder or watches more film. What a great example for young kids who come into the locker room."

The Patriots face off with the Chiefs on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET in the AFC Championship game.

This will be Brady's 14th AFC Championship appearance and eighth in a row.
