Tom Brady played a number of great games with the Patriots, most notably the Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seahawks and Super Bowl LI against the Falcons.

But appearing on “Greatness Code,” an Apple TV+ docu-series which debuts Friday, Brady revealed his most perfect game with the Patriots and it's one not many think of.

Sunday, Nov. 18, 2007 in Buffalo.

The Patriots entered the game 9-0 and crushed the Bills, 56-10 on Sunday Night Football. New England led 35-7 at halftime and Brady finished the game 31-for-39 passing with 373 yards and five touchdowns for a QB rating of 146.1.

“I almost giggle every time I think about that game,” Brady said via Boston.com's Nicole Yang. “Because ever since that game, I’m still trying to get back to that point. Because in so many ways, for me, it was a perfect night.”

In all, the Patriots offense scored on seven consecutive possessions, while also having a defensive touchdown mixed in.

“That was a clinic,” Brady said. “That’s the one that you’re always trying to strive for.”

The seven-minute feature offers a breakdown of the game, including some of his best throws to Randy Moss and Donte Stallworth.

“I don’t think many people would ever think about that game when they think about my career,” Brady said. “I don’t think people would go, ‘Man, that Sunday night Buffalo Bills game, that was the one.’ But for me, when I think about it — and I’ve got this big catalog of games — I think, ‘Yep, that was the one.’”
