For two decades, Tom Brady was a force in the postseason, leading the New England Patriots to nine Super Bowls and six titles. In his first season at the helm of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady has not only led his new team to within one victory of the 2021 Super Bowl, but has also been one of the strongest 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge picks. Brady threw four touchdowns against Washington on Wild Card Weekend and then had three total TDs against the Saints in the Divisional Round.
As one of the most prolific quarterback-sneak rushers in NFL history and with a potential 3x multiplier on his side, is Brady a must-start in your 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge lineups on Sunday? Who else can you trust with your 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge picks?

Top NFL Playoff Challenge picks for Championship Weekend 2021
One of McClure's top NFL Playoff Challenge picks for Championship Weekend 2021: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. The league's top tight end finished the regular season with 1,416 receiving yards on 105 catches with 11 touchdowns. After a rest in Week 17 and a first-round bye, Kelce starred in the Chiefs' Divisional Round game against Cleveland with eight catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.
Kelce's output against the Browns was status quo, as he has caught at least seven passes and a touchdown in five straight games and averaged 109.4 yards per outing during that span.
Kelce's Championship Weekend matchup against the Bills is a favorable one, as the former Cincinnati star caught five of seven targets for 65 yards and two touchdowns against Buffalo in Week 6.
