In the three recent Patriots losses in an AFC championship game, Brady was stymied in the second half by the Ravens once and the Broncos twice. Sunday’s game was on a similar track until Eli Apple Womens Jersey Brady became his possessed self.
Elite Womens Mikael Granlund Jersey With five Super Bowl rings in seven trips, and now a chance for a sixth ring to follow up what he engineered against Atlanta, Brady is already considered by most to be the greatest quarterback of all time. It seemed like there was nothing else he could do to create more awe.
In the ESPN story, an anonymous Patriots staffer described a play in which Brady overlooked an open receiver downfield for a possible touchdown, instead throwing over the middle to wideout Chris Hogan, who was tackled short of a first down and injured his shoulder. Tom was trying to get it out quick, the staffer told ESPN. As fragility has increased, nervousness has also increased.
Despite the emerging concern, experts see reason to relax. Kurt Warner, who played until age 38 and now analyzes the NFL for Westwood One, said he has seen no discernible drop-off from Brady this season overall, despite a late-season rough patch.
I will say, I can’t remember too many five-game stretches where Tom kind of played at this level, or not up to his normal standard, Warner said. I’m just one that’s very leery of always [saying], ‘He hit the 40 wall.’ Or, ‘Father Time caught up to him between Week 10 and Week 12.’ That kind of stuff, I think it’s crazy. But people always want to do that. They’re looking for that moment, where everything starts to go the other direction.

Cousins’ assists included alley-oop lobs to Davis and a couple of long passes to him for breakaway baskets.
You dream about moments like that as a kid — a game coming down to the line and just making big plays down the stretch, Cousins said. I think we just willed our way through this game.
