A miracle occurred in Massachusetts today, as Tom Brady led his New England Patriots to a big ‘W’; earning them a trip to Super Bowl LII.
Although the 5-time Super Bowl winning quarterback played with an injured hand during the AFC Championship game, he still managed to rally up his patriots and throw a touchdown pass to Danny Amendola with 2:48 remaining in the 4th Quarter and leading the Patriots to a 24-20 comeback victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With this win, Tom Brady finished 26 of 38 for 290 yards and two touchdowns. The Patriots, now 15-3, will play the winner of Sunday Night’s game between Minnesota and Philadelphia on February 4th.
This will be the 8th Super Bowl appearance for Brady and coach Bill Belichick, who have a total of 5 rings to their name.
In an on-field interview with CBS after the game, Brady discussed the hand injury that had dominated the conversation before the game.
“I’ve had a lot worse,” Brady said. “I didn’t know that on Wednesday, it was a crazy injury.” He added, “Today we did just enough to win.”
On going to the Super Bowl again: “It’s pretty crazy. It’s pretty amazing. To be on a team that wins these kids of games is a great accomplishment.”
Congratulations to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots!
