2010 - Pats v. Jets - a historically great Pats team submits a complete no-show and is in many ways dominated by a team they beat 45-3 a few weeks before. Brady never looks comfortable and throws a pick on the first Pats drive
2011 - Pats v. Ravens - when a win feels like a loss. Brady again plays poorly and does everything he can to lose the game. Ravens need a dropped TD pass and a missed 32 yard FG to avoid even OT.
2011 - Giants v. Pats - Brady intentional grounding in the endzone on the Pats first play. I could go through more, but why torture Pats fans? Or should I? lol
I'd say Pats winning today is no better than 50/50
That's torture? Torture is what the jets went thru last year. I don't expect to win every SB, or get to one. Each chance is a gift.
