Tom Brady on fumble: They made one good play at right time

Tom Brady passed for three touchdowns and a Super Bowl-record 505 passing yards. But two plays will haunt him this offseason.

Brady dropped a pass from Danny Amendola on a second-quarter trick play, and the Patriots turned it over on downs from the Philadelphia 35.

Then, in the fourth quarter, with the Patriots in need of a touchdown to win, everyone in the building expected Brady to lead New England down the field. But on second-and-two from the New England 33, Brady lost a fumble on a strip-sack.

“They made a good play,” Brady said. “They made a good play. They made one good play at the right time.”

Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham hit Brady’s arm, forcing the fumble and the ball bounced into Derek Barnett‘s arms with 2:09 remaining.

“I knew I had a one-on-one with the guard,” Graham said. “I knew he liked to be aggressive, so I tried to act like I was pulling. I snatched it right off, and Tom Brady’s arm was right there, and I went for the ball.”

The Patriots gained 613 yards and never punted, becoming the first team in NFL history to gain 600 yards and lose.

  1. What a great play at a great time.

    Has anyone seen tylawspick6? Why isn’t he in here talking his usual smack?

  2. Streettyson says: haters will crow that 2yd-Tom is past it

    ———————–

    Ah no, we will crow about the pass he dropped & the fact he didn’t congratulate Foles. Steelers 6 – Pats 5. Tick, tick, Tommy…

  3. Philly offense was awesome but so was New England’s.
    Both Foles and Brady played fantastic.
    To say Brady did not play well or is over the hill is simply foolish.

  4. Funny how last year the game turned on a fumble by Atlanta’s QB. That’s football. Tough to get it going from the 10 and you need 90 yards and a 2 pt. conversion for a tie with less than a minute to go. Eagles drained the clock on NE in the 4th with their long drive. That killed NE’s chances for their trademark comeback. Congrat’s to NE for having yet again a fine season.

    bottom line, brady sucks and is way, way beyond his prime.DONE chowder heads
    ———————————————————————————–

    Other than being part of a superbowl record for total offense in a superbowl. cow pie heads

  6. he is right. He tore that so called elite defense a new one the entire game. He destroyed them. Jacksonville played better than the Eagles did on defense. Greatest quarterback performance of all time in a super bowl. Then one play his guard gets beat. One play. That’s football.

  7. Brady just got out dueled by Nick Foles. Lol. Foles caught a TD pass lol. Brady dropped an easy pass lol. Brady choked the game away.

  8. Tom’s right ..they made the play and Tom didn’t. Like Gisele said “you can’t expect him to catch the ball to”…. although it did hit him in the hands.

    At least fans of 31 teams still get to laugh at the Dolphin fan who invests so much time and effort using multiple use names in an effort to demonstrate how jealous Dolphin fans are of the Patriots success. Being losers since 2018 will never be as bad as being losers since 1972.

  10. It’s amusing to read quotes about how Brady “sucks”. I know they only exist because of the choke hold he’s had on the league for how ever many years it’s been, and it’s a rare moment because of that when you get to take shots. He just threw for 500 yards in his 8th Super Bowl, but yeah, he really sucks, doesn’t he? Good lord – the hatred runs deep and into the nonsensical realm.

    This is your night to spew mindless drivel if yhays What you need to do, but I’d rather just congratulate the Eagles on the win. They deserved it and Nick Foles played great throughout the whole game. Philadelphia will enjoy this as they should.

  11. Brady played a great game and when you get to the play-offs, there really is a fine line between winning and losing, just ask the Saints or Julio Jones who could easily have killed off the Eagles and Foles legacy in the wildcard round. However show a bit of class at the end #Tommy and don’t just jog off to the locker room without congratulating the winning team.

  12. No question about it Patriots tonite proved they couldn’t win the biggest game of the year even though the other team had a back up QB. GOAT? Sometimes.

  13. Kind of felt bad for Pats fans. They didn’t have the Ref’s giving them all the calls .Sad fact …for those that are purveyors of facts

  14. Brady only torched flu ridden darby. Seriously he probably had 300 yards against him. The rest of the d played pretty well.

  15. They made “one” good play? How arrogant is this guy? Guess what, Eagles made a ton of good plays, many more than the Patriots. Now get back on that field and congratulate the winners instead of running to the locker room like a scare little baby.

  16. That was an arrogant remark from Brady. You fumbled, excuse me and lost the game. Would have been nice if you had at least congratulated some of the other players, instead of rushing to the locker room.
    No MVP for you.
    Congrats to the Eagles, you played really well.

    Brady tied Tarkenton and Elway as the QB with the second most SB losses: one more and he ties Kelly for the most SB losses. GOAT?
    YES, GOAT. Tark was 0-3, Elway 2-3, Kelly 0-4, Brady 5-3.

    Take out the cheating and the refs he should be 3-5. Plus stupid opposing coaches (Carroll and Quinn). I think the success of this team is all on Bill Belichick. Brady on any other team would be ordinary. BB? Not so much.

  19. Don’t worry, the NFL wants Brady/Bellichick to win one more then they’ll both retire.. Next year or the year after I predict.. Maybe a rematch next year????
