When New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took the field Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, he was without the black tape he wore to cover a laceration on his throwing hand in the AFC Championship Game.
Yahoo Sports showed the change between the two games:
The tape didn't disrupt Brady too much in the AFC title game, as he threw for 290 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Still, some Patriots fans were likely a little worried when Brady told reporters his hand was "not quite where I want it to be" in terms of healing from the laceration. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo showed the 13-time Pro Bowler wearing a glove on the injured hand during a Super Bowl press conference:
Brady's right hand certainly didn't give him any trouble in the first quarter, as he went 6-of-9 for 120 yards, though the Patriots still trailed 9-3 with one quarter in the books.
