Tom Brady became the first quarterback in NFL history to win six Super Bowls, as The New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 on Sunday night. Off the field, Brady and other NFL players team to build companies. Brady recently partnered with former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan, who is the co-host of ABC’s Good Morning America, to launch a sports media startup called Religion of Sports Media, which has raised $3 million in venture capital funding from CourtsideVC and Advancit Capital.
