Tom Brady Says Goodbye To Gillette Stadium, Thanks Fans For 2018

Tom Brady and his teammates finished the 2018 regular season at Gillette Stadium in the perfect way.

The Kansas City Chiefs won the game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, so Sunday’s Divisional Round match against the Chargers was the final game of the season for New England at Gillette Stadium. It was an awesome year filled with ups and downs. The Patriots are undefeated at home this year, and they are the only team to that in the league this year. The win over the Chargers moved them to 9-0 on the season.

Gillette Stadium is Tom Brady’s home

Brady took to his Instagram account to share a pic of himself looking over an empty stadium at 9:45 a.m. before the Divisional Round game. The quarterback thanked Foxboro for the home advantage and wrote that the Patriots are still here.

TB12 completed 34 of his 44 passes for 343 yards and a touchdown.

“They’re a good defense and I think they do a lot of things well and I thought we just did a good job executing,” Brady said. “Again, blocking great and running the ball well and guys made some great catches, converted early on third downs. It was really important. It was good to get ahead of that team. They have a lot of good skill players, a very good offense. They battle to the end. They’re a great football team. It’s good to win.”

The Patriots may be unbeatable at home, but they were 3-5 on the road in 2018.

“That was a pretty crappy loss that night,” Brady said. “We’ve had some other ones. I think we showed a lot of perseverance, a lot of toughness. This team is showing it. We’ve had some tough losses this year too but you just keep fighting. That’s what football is all about. It’s a season. It’s not one game or four games or eight games. It’s 16 games and you get a chance to be in this position. We played good today. That’s why we won and Kansas City’s had a hell of a year. They gave us everything we could handle in – what was that? October or November? – I don’t remember but I’m sure it’ll be the same. It’ll be a tough game. They’re well-coached. They’ve got a good offense. They played well defensively against the Colts. It’s going to be a lot of fun to go back there and play in a championship game and try to advance.”
