Brady had a pass intercepted by D'Qwell Jackson who noticed the ball was a bit flat and took it to the Colts sidelines. Everything went from there and here we are today, with two Patriots locker room workers being fired and their star quarterback missing the start of the season as they look to defend the Super Bowl they won after a miracle play from Malcolm Butler.
