Tom Brady sends message to haters, critics in postgame interview


New England (12-5) also showed off its rushing attack in a 41-28 win against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

The dominant performance helped New England reach its eighth straight AFC Conference Championship Game.

The Patriots will now travel to Kansas City next Sunday for the AFC championship. "They're well-coached. They've got a good offense". When you've won five Super Bowl titles, you need to find all the motivation possible, and perhaps Brady has found some with all of the criticism hurled his way this season. But on the rare occasions when Brady did stumble, some critics chalked it up to his age, and used that as a excuse to say the Patriots dynasty is finished. They even went 11-5 in 2008, when he missed nearly the entire season after suffering a first-week knee injury.

But with Brady reportedly as healthy as he's been all season and the Patriots getting to play the underdog role entering the AFC title game showdown with the Chiefs, how could you bet against the legendary quarterback next Sunday? "Everybody thinks we don't have enough", wide receiver Phillip Dorsett said, according to ESPN.

The one aspect of Brady's comments that most people outside the Patriots' locker room would agree with is that their upcoming contest should be fun. "We just want to keep this thing rolling". As he said, "We'll see".
