Tom Brady, Patriots embrace underdog role after win over Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa sacks New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Oct. 29 2017 in Foxborough Mass

Brady's troll game remains strong, apparently.

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. They even went 11-5 in 2008, when he missed nearly the entire season after suffering a first-week knee injury.

Despite their dominating victory over the Chargers, and a win earlier this season in Foxborough against the Chiefs, the Patriots are 3-point underdogs entering next Sunday's AFC championship game.


It's the first time in the Super Bowl era that the NFL's top four scoring offenses all reached the conference championships.

The victor will move on to play the Rams on Sunday, January 20th. "But the only thing that matters is what we think in this room and we believe". "It's football. If it was going by what people said, there would be no reason to play the game".

The one aspect of Brady's comments that most people outside the Patriots' locker room would agree with is that their upcoming contest should be fun. When you have a whole group of guys that believes, it can be a special thing. He put on a vintage performance, completing 34 of 44 passes for 343 yards and one touchdown. "We'll see where we are now, see where they are".
