Tom Brady, Patriots embrace underdog role after win over Chargers

20190110-WhatTheyreSaying-2500x1406

Brady has defied the odds by staying at the top of his game for as long as he has, but time is catching up with him.

The New England Patriots came up short in their latest bid for a Lombardi Trophy nearly a year ago, and while they're back in the playoff picture, another first-round bye week in the books, they've got maybe the most talented team in the AFC standing in their way.

Yeah, sure. The Patriots went 11-5 and finished second in the AFC standings.

Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Fined For Denying Employees Proper Benefits
Lieberman pointed to the many moderate Democrats who beat Republicans in purple districts in 2018. Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist , didn't flinch at the comment.

Perhaps someone got quick word to Brady, just after his team's 41-28 dismissal of Philip Rivers and the Chargers, that the Patriots had been installed as underdogs to Kansas City. In the NFC, Nick Foles led the Eagles to a stunning upset of the Bears, but can the defending Super Bowl champions take down the No. 1 Saints? They have a first-year starter at quarterback, albeit an MVP front-runner, in Patrick Mahomes.

But New Orleans' defense played a crucial role in its 20-14 win over Philadelphia in the divisional round on Sunday. "Everybody thinks we don't have enough", wide receiver Phillip Dorsett said, according to ESPN. When you have a whole group of guys that believes, it can be a special thing. On the other, you have Brady and coach Bill Belichick, who know better than any tandem in National Football League history how to win games like this one.

Well, Brady showed that he's still got it, proving the doubters wrong on Sunday, with 343 yards and a 77.3 percent completion percentage. "We'll see where we are now, see where they are".
