Mere hours after his MVP press conference, Super Bowl LIII superstar Julian Edelman is already on a well-deserved vacation.
The New England Patriots wide receiver posted several clips and photos on Instagram early Monday afternoon showing himself and quarterback Tom Brady in Disney World the day after their championship victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
The two athletes posted photos from the Toy Story Mania ride as well as the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge area of the park.
As fans of the New Orleans Saints know all too well, one flag – or a flag not thrown – can completely alter the course of a season.
By now everyone has seen or heard about the blown call during the NFC championship game between those Saints and the Super Bowl-bound Los Angeles Rams. The NFL has admitted that the refs made a mistake and subsequently fined Rams defender Nickell Robey-Coleman for targeting on the play.
However, no amount of apologizing can halt what has already begun – a demand for the NFL to change the rules surrounding pass interference. And unfortunately for the league, that wasn’t the only questionable rule or play that the masses took notice of during championship weekend.
During the AFC championship game, Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones was penalized for roughing the passer after grazing the face mask of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots were able to continue the drive and score a touchdown.
The call looked all too familiar to Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers.
On September 20, 2015, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were listed as underdogs going into their game against the Buffalo Bills.
The Patriots won that matchup 40-32.
That victory over Buffalo marks the last time Brady and his Patriots were declared as underdogs by Las Vegas, but heading into Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs, they are underdogs once again. That ends a streak of 67 starts, 174 weeks and 1,278 days as the betting favorite for Brady.
During Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reached a milestone he’s been working towards for nearly two decades — 1,000 total rushing yards.
As is tradition with Brady, he took to Instagram after the victory to celebrate.
“The only reason I’ve been playing 19 years is to get to that 1,000 yards,” he said in a clip posted to his account Monday afternoon.
And then, as he climbed into his car, Brady uttered the words that will send chills down the spines of Patriots fans everywhere: “That’s it. I’m out. Time to ride off into the sunset.”
In the history of professional quarterbacks, Peyton Manning has the most touchdown passes. Aaron Rodgers has the highest passer rating. Tom Brady has the most Super Bowl rings.
But who’s the best player overall?
There’s a lot to consider when making your pick for Greatest Of All Time — GOAT, for short. Lucky for us, ESPN put together an all-star panel of NFL icons to decide once and for all: Who is the best quarterback of the modern era?
A group of 10 NFL coaches and executives all submitted their votes for their top quarterbacks since 1978 — but the selection process was not as unanimous as you’d believe.
You can’t always get what you want — even if you’re Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.
The famous couple reside in Brookline, Massachusetts, right next door to an exclusive country club (actually called The Country Club), to which they applied for membership in 2015.
The club, however, denied Brady and Bundchen entry. According to The Boston Globe, The Country Club is “famous for understatement and insularity,” and a pair as high-profile as the quarterback and supermodel could cause a problem.
It was suggested that Brady reapply after his retirement from the NFL — which we all know probably isn’t happening any time soon.
Tom Brady’s place in history has long been discussed by fans and analysts, but it seems he’s officially won over his peers.
The Super Bowl LI MVP was voted No. 1 overall on NFL Network’s annual Top 100 Players list, which is chosen by the athletes themselves.
Brady’s opponent in the Super Bowl and league MVP Matt Ryan came in at a surprisingly low No. 10 on the list.
The clouds over Boston couldn’t dampen the spirits of Tom Brady, Guy Fieri or any of the guests at the Cooking with Best Buddies Food and Wine Festival and accompanying football game at Harvard University.
Best Buddies International, a nonprofit organization benefiting those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, kicked off a weekend’s worth of festivities in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Friday evening.
Popular celebrity chef and TV personality Guy Fieri hosted the second annual Guy Cooking with Best Buddies event while New England Patriots quarterback and Super Bowl LI MVP Tom Brady held the Best Buddies Football Challenge flag football game at Harvard Stadium.
The game featured Brady quarterbacking for both teams alongside some of his famous friends, including Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy and Patriots teammates Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, James White and Dion Lewis.
Stars like Tom Brady and Ryan Lochte may be household names in the United States, but that doesn’t necessarily hold true throughout the rest of the world.
ESPN revealed the 2017 edition of its annual World Fame 100 ranking on Tuesday, listing the top 100 most famous active athletes on the planet.
For the second year in a row, soccer asserted its place as the most popular sport on Earth, with 3 of the top 10 most famous athletes being footballers. Tennis, golf and basketball were close behind with 2 stars each.
Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth, also landed a spot in the top 10.
It’s no secret that New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick doesn’t like distractions in his locker room.
Over the past two years, as the shadow of Deflategate and Tom Brady’s four-game suspension hung over both his team and the league, Belichick remained as stoic as ever. His players followed suit, staying as quiet as possible about their newly-strained relationship with Commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell, all the while keeping their eyes on the prize of getting to and winning Super Bowl LI.
Many speculated about what would happen if the Patriots were to win the Super Bowl in the 2016-17 season. How would Goodell deal with handing the Lombardi Trophy to team owner Robert Kraft — or even to Brady?
In the days leading up to the big game, Goodell insisted he would not feel awkward up on that stage with the Patriots, going so far as to say it would be “an honor” to award Brady his fifth trophy. He also addressed his notable absence from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, throughout the 2016 season and playoffs, saying that he would gladly attend a Patriots home game if the team were to invite him.
Other than a few thinly veiled shots at the commissioner from Robert Kraft, the Patriots, still, kept their feelings to themselves.
