Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a brilliant athlete, and he has shown his greatness on the field in so many occasions. The quarterback had an excellent game last Sunday, and the Kansas City Chiefs did not have a chance to defeat his team.
Brady took the football with 3:03 left to play in the fourth quarter of the contest, and the score knotted at 30 between the Patriots and Chiefs. He drove the offense down 65-yards to setup the game winning the field goal as time went 0. Brady’s play was impressive, but everyone is so focused on the thing he told Matthew Slater.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss confirms that Brady told Slater that they are good. However, Slater did not share the same opinion. “We are? It sure doesn’t feel that way,” Slater said. But, everything turned well, and he told Reiss that he was convinced in Brady’s words.
Tyreek Hill scored his 75-yard touchdown, and Brady was still confident that they will be able to win.
“Yeah, you know, we had confidence. I think, I’m glad when he was running – Tyreek was running to score – I said, ‘Good, score quick.’ Because then we had enough time. They had one timeout left, and it gave us a little time to go down and kick the field goal,” Brady said after the game.
“You can look in a man’s eyes and know, in pressure situations, this guy is not going to be able to handle this, he’s not going to be ready. You look into that guy’s eyes and it’s a laser-like focus. They haven’t always worked out for us, but you see extreme confidence in his eyes, and that’s because he’s prepared, he’s done it, and he believes in the guys around him,” Slater said of Brady.
“I think the first thing that stands out to me is he obviously embraces the moment and the opportunity to go out there and attempt to do his job under pressure in those types of situations, which I think is the first thing you have to be able to do if you’re going to go out there and have some success. He’s a great leader under pressure like that because he stays calm, he has great poise, he’s very situationally aware,” Josh McDaniels said during the conference call.
