Down 10 points, nursing stitches in his throwing hand, directing a one-dimensional attack minus the greatest tight end in history as well as trusty chain-mover Julian Edelman, Brady shredded the league’s dominant pass defense for 138 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a sensational fourth quarter.
Overflowing the NFL Films vault with the latest in a seemingly unending string of instant classics, Brady stands alone atop quarterback mountain, increasing his unsurmountable lead over the pantheon of gridiron legends. Brady’s NFL-record eighth fourth-quarterback comeback in the postseason leaves him with 23 more touchdowns, 2,382 more yards, 11 more victories and three more Super Bowl appearances than any quarterback in playoff history.
Much like Super Bowl LI, the Patriots were clearly outclassed by a younger, physical, more athletic squad through three quarters. Following a familiar pattern, however, they were forced to compensate with Brady’s brilliance, a stifling fourth-quarter defense, questionable coaching decisions on the opposing sideline and a series of clutch plays mixed with favorable calls.
Making sound decisions and converting an impressive array of third downs in a ball-control attack, Bortles tied a career-high with 12 consecutive completions in the heart of the afternoon. By halftime, he had completed 13 of 15 throws for 155 yards, one score and a gaudy 131.9 passer rating. Until that fateful final frame, it was fair to make the claim that Bortles had finally lived up to his No. 3 overall draft-pick pedigree, producing the best game of his career on the biggest stage the franchise has seen to date.

As it turns out, building a complete team offensively and defensively around the QB still pays off big time. The Packers and Seahawks were too reliant on Rodgers and Wilson, and that’s why they weren’t close to playing for the NFC title. In the end, having the better defense from beginning to end, and not the more pedigreed QB, allowed the Vikings and Eagles to squeak by the Saints and Falcons, respectively.

He was immediately apologetic, but he also blamed his Authentic Nicolas Hague Jersey action on game officials who don’t flag defenders for how they defend against him, an explanation that undercut his apology and left plenty of people calling for a lengthier suspension. Even Coach Bill Belichick admitted it was a bull[crap] play as he apologized to Buffalo Bills Coach Sean McDermott.
