Jimmy Garoppolo is starting his first NFL game on the road.
But when he returns home, the Patriots interim quarterback won’t have to worry about the football version of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg looking down on him.
Via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft said on his pregame segment on 98.5 The Sports Hub that the banner of suspended quarterback Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium will be coming down tonight.
“From end of preseason to today, we wanted to symbolize the fact he is on everybody’s mind and we love him,” Kraft said.
Kraft said Brady would be the last one to want to call attention to himself, though the banner has gotten plenty of attention, with Saints coach Sean Payton showing his support last week.
