How do they keep pulling it out of the bag? On Sunday evening, the New England Patriots did it again, fighting and digging deep until the very last as they came out on top in the AFC Championship game.
Tom Brady was at the heart of everything good for the Patriots, doing incredibly well to rebound from the loss of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski to lead the Boston-based team to their second-straight Super Bowl.
The Jaguars dominated in nearly every single phase of play in the first half, and found themselves 14-3 up at one point in the second quarter, thanks to touchdowns from Leonard Fournette and Marcedes Lewis.
But you can never count out the Patriots. With Tom Brady running the offense and Bill Belichick on the sideline pulling all the strings, New England are never out of any game, like the Falcons learned last year.
And the inevitable comeback came through, with Brady getting the 54th come-from-behind win of his career as the Pats eventually ran out 24-20 winners over the underdog Jaguars.
On social media, there was only storyline that fans were discussing in the aftermath. It wasn't the officials, who kept the flags in their pockets for once, or any other controversial calls. The only other conversation to have was that of Brady - and his confirmation of truly being the greatest to ever play this game we love so much.
Can anyone really deny that Brady isn't the greatest of all-time at this point?
Five Super Bowl rings, 13 Pro Bowl appearances, two-time NFL MVP, four-time Super Bowl MVP, 488 career touchdowns. Just incredible numbers that barely anybody in the history of the game can keep up with.
If you still aren't a believer in Brady's GOAT status, then ask yourself this: If your team is down by 4, needing a touchdown to win with two minutes left on the clock - who do you want under center?
The answer should be Tom Brady. The King of Clutch.
