But he is not alone.
The longer halftime also provides the chance for more adjustments, which can be hard to do in the regular season with so little time.
So, if you expected it to happen again, figured the iconic Patriots quarterback would lead his team down the field for the touchdown that capped another comeback win and added another layer of glory to his illustrious resume, there is no shame in being wrong. If you're starting a franchise tomorrow, Tom Brady isn't your first choice. "A lot falls on her plate, so I'm very, very lucky". The Patriots appeared to have things going well at times, but the defense was just off and some of the trick plays were called at the strangest of times.

Brady was sacked by Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham, with the fumble recovered by Derek Barnett.
