Rob Ryan had a similar reaction after New England's game-winning touchdown; Tom Brady will do that to you
While I just noted you never want to place too much pressure on Tom Brady, isn’t it great to know that he still thrives in it?
With the game on the line, Brady did what he did what he does best in calmly leading New England’s offense on the game-winning 80-yard drive that was capped off with him hitting Aaron Hernandez on an 8-yard touchdown pass with just seconds remaining.
Of course, Brady didn’t have a great overall game, by any means. For the second straight meeting, he struggled to solve coordinator Rob Ryan’s complex strategy. Brady also tossed two interceptions, the second one (to Sean Lee) of which I had no idea whom he was trying to throw to.
Nevertheless, despite failing to score 30 points and struggling to stay upright against the Cowboys’ pass rush, a vintage Brady methodically carved the defense up when it mattered the most, leaving a helpless Rob Ryan stunned in disbelief. Following the game, Bill Belichick reiterated that he’s glad he has Tom Brady as his quarterback. It’s easy to see why.
