Patriots gridiron news: Tom Brady undeniably greatest comeback QB ever


Tom Brady orchestrated yet another 4th quarter comeback to lead the New England Patriots to their 10th Super Bowl appearance.

It’s on to Super Bowl LII for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.  The man known as the GOAT put on his super quarterback cape and led his team to a 24-20 comeback victory over the very talented Jacksonville Jaguars.

Down 20-10 in the 4th quarter, the 40-year-old quarterback with stitches in his hand went 9-for-14 with 138 yards and two touchdowns to punch the Patriots a ticket to Minneapolis to face the Philadelphia Eagles.

Somewhere this morning, the Max Kellerman’s and Rob Parker’s of the world are waking up miserable, but even they can’t deny what this man continues to accomplish.  To cap it all off, his latest heroic effort was without Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.

Simply amazing!

Following the game, a very coy Tom Brady reminded NFL fans everywhere that a game is never over at halftime, especially with this quarterback and this football team.

"“That’s why you play all four quarters, too,” Brady said, as transcribed by WEEI.  “The game is never over after the halftime, and you’ve got to go to the end.  There’s some things that we’re good at and other things we haven’t been very good at.  I think going a little faster in our tempo has been really good for us over the course of the season and we needed to make some plays there, we did, and the guys certainly at the receiver position and all the skill guys made a lot of great plays out there tonight.”More from Chowder and Champions3 Midseason Chaim Bloom Decisions That Have Killed the 2023 Red Sox10 Patriots Who Will Be Cut by Tuesday’s Roster DeadlineMLB Screws Red Sox Fans With Broadcast for Mookie Betts Return3 Most Underpaid Celtics Heading Into the 2023 SeasonRed Sox Continue Rollercoaster Season With Massive Win"

Those players were Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and even Phillip Dorset had a big catch.  More evidence that when you have the greatness that is Tom Brady throwing the ball, players elevate and deliver. 

Jaguars safety Myles Jack tips his head to Brady

While some of the Jacksonville Jaguars defensive players are complaining about calls that didn’t go their way, safety Myles Jack gave credit where credit is due.

"“You can’t give the Patriots any air,” Jack said following the game.  “If you get a pass interference, you get an offsides, they are going to capitalize on it.  That’s what makes them so great.  Little things like that, the crowd gets into, they start playing their song, Brady starts moving faster.”"

Jack was referring to penalties before the end of the first half that led to a New England Patriots touchdown to cut the score at the time to 14-10.

The Eagles simply demolished the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship game.  Led by Nick Foles, Philadelphia will be out to avenge a Super Bowl XXXIX loss to the Patriots.  It should be a fun couple of weeks between the two fan bases as the teams prepare for a showdown in Minneapolis.
