Tom Brady may well have played his last game for the New England Patriots after the six-time Super Bowl winners were defeated 20-13 by the Tennessee Titans in a sensational upset at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night.
The Patriots suffered their earliest exit from the NFL playoffs since 2009 following their loss in the AFC Wild Card game - and many now believe that the 42-year-old has played his last game at Foxborough.
The legendary quarterback has certainly not been at his best at times this campaign - and has yet to sign an extension to his current contract, which expires at the end of this season.
In truth, Brady turned in a sub-par performance for much of the evening against the Titans, completing just 20 of 37 passes on the night for a total of 209 yards - none of which led to touchdowns.
In contrast, running back Derrick Henry starred for the Titans, running for 182 yards in the game, recording one touchdown.
His efforts helped Tennessee into a 14-13 half-time lead, which they held until the dying seconds of the fourth quarter.
Despite trailing by a point going into the final minute of the game, Brady still had an outside chance of winning the game for his team - with the Patriots in possession on their own one-yard line.
Unfortunately for Brady, though, his final pass was intercepted by former teammate Logan Ryan, who swiftly returned the ball for a Tennessee touchdown.
The score which would confirm their victory was celebrated raucously by the Titans - who now travel to the number one seeded Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs next Sunday night.
The memorable final moments of the game were perhaps best encapsulated by Twitter user @extremelysquid, who posted an epic video of Brady's intercepted pass set to "My Heart Will Go On" from the Titanic soundtrack.
Tom Brady will no doubt now take some time to evaluate his own immediate future following this defeat.
Brady is rumoured to want to continue playing, but it would seem a long shot that he would be able to recapture the sort of form that would be required to win a seventh Super Bowl at this point.
The victorious Titans enter next weekend's clash with the Ravens as underdogs. However, even if they fail to advance further in the playoffs, they are sure to forever have fond memories of the night that they toppled the New England Patriots on their own turf.News Now - Sport News
