(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)[/caption] In August, when Tom Brady turned 38, we looked at some of the best seasons of any 38-year-old quarterback in the history of the NFL. And so, in the wake of Brady's scorching start, we wondered where Brady's current three-game stretch ranks in relation to some of the best three-game performances from some of the best 38-year-old signal-callers to have played the game. (This includes two three-game stretches for Peyton Manning from the 2014 season, his second with the Broncos.)
