Brady's Facebook picture helps hype up AFC Championship game

It has been a memorable weekend for any NFL fan as this years divisional round in the play-offs gave us plenty of thrills.

From Dez Bryant's catch that wasn't costing the Cowboys a place in the Championship game, to New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's touchdown pass and lets not forget Kam Chancellor's cheeky special teams plays.

We saw many different things this weekend, multiple 14 point comebacks, a surprising result in Denver and several of the league's best players do almost nothing in their games.

But now after the craziness has ended and fans try to prepare themselves for the championship games on Sunday, one big name has been up to his usual tricks.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a memorable game on Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens and it hasn't taken long for the future Hall of Famer to take to social media to send a message out to the Patriots fans.


After their win in Denver on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts found out that they will be travelling to Massachusetts to take on Brady and the Patriots.

This has led to a very interesting picture uploaded by Brady on Facebook that pictures him riding a Colt.

The animal that Brady's next opponents are named after, the picture shows the quarterback riding the animal whilst still throwing the ball.

It was accompanied with the caption 'six days' showing that Brady is already trying to build up his next clash with Andrew Luck.

Tom Brady's social media antics were the talk of the season and he looks like he intends to continue that in the post-season, however long that may last for New England.

Same old faces

This will be the second time in two years the Patriots and the Colts will face off at Gillette Stadium in the play-offs.

It will also be the second time this season that the Colts and Patriots will go head to head and the previous meetings don't look good for Indianapolis.

The Patriots beat the Colts 43-22 in the play-offs last year and 42-20 in a regular season meeting earlier this season.

Perhaps more worryingly for the Colts, in those two games, the Patriots have scored 10 rushing touchdowns.

With LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray both having incredible performances and set to line up for the Patriots on Sunday, the Colts number one priority has to be containing the run.

Sunday should give us a great match between an ever changing Bill Belichick offense and the best passing offense in the league this season and whoever makes it to Arizona is a worthy Super Bowl challenger.
