Look: NFL Fans Freaked Out By This Lamar Jackson, Tom Brady Age Comparison Graphic

Quarterback Rankings Week 2: Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson

It's no secret that Tom Brady has been playing quarterback in the NFL for an unprecedented length of time.

But a graphic during the Thursday Night Football broadcast really hit home how long Brady has been dominating the league.

Amazon Prime Video showed a timeline comparison for the 45-year-old Brady and the quarterback on the opposite sideline Thursday night, the Baltimore Ravens' Lamar Jackson.

The most jarring entry: When Brady started his career as an NFL starter and led the Patriots to the Super Bowl in 2001, Jackson was just four years old.

When Brady led the New England Patriots to their 16-0 regular season, Jackson was playing youth football at the age of 10.

It's not like Jackson is a rookie, either. The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner is in his fifth NFL season. 

Brady continues to defy Father Time, leading the Bucs to an early 10-3 lead against Jackson and the Ravens.
