Tom Brady Says Goodbye To Gillette Stadium, Thanks Fans For 2018
January 14, 2019
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

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.”
