How many touchdowns does tom brady have
Since his meteoric rise from backup quarterback to Super Bowl champion in the 2001 season, Tom Brady has been the franchise player of the New England Patriots. He’s won five Super Bowls, four Super Bowl MVPs, two NFL MVPs, and made 13 Pro Bowls. But most fans are more than aware of these accolades. Here are 41 things you might not know about the 41-year-old quarterback: 1. He unintentionally dozed off for 20 or 30 minutes before his first Super Bowl. Prior to the kickoff of Super Bowl XXXVI, Brady navigated the elongated pregame by taking a short nap in the locker room: “Twelve minutes later we were running out onto the field.” 2. His diet used to be a far cry from the healthy standards he now adheres by. While Brady is now a strict disciplinarian about what he eats, his rookie year was a little different. He used to eat nachos before games in 2000, when he was a fourth-string quarterback. And his “go-to lunches were ham-and-cheese subs with onion rings, washed … [Read more...] about 41 things you might not know about Tom Brady
We know the most important date, and one of the teams involved. That's Sept. 6, when the NFL season begins in Philadelphia, with a prime-time game starring the defending champion Eagles. What we don't yet know is how the rest of the NFL schedule will shake out, with the exception of three compelling games in England.But we do now know the full schedule will be released Thursday night during a two-hour prime-time special on NFL Network. (As usual, the league is announcing its schedule before the NFL draft, because it doesn't want to detract from that event. This year's draft begins on April 26.)The Thursday night schedule release show, hosted by Scott Hanson, will also reveal the highly anticipated slate of Thursday night Fox games, although more scheduling nuggets are likely to dribble out in the 24 hours before that program.Until we have specifics, here's a look at the opponents each team will face in 2018, at home and on the road, plus one game we're most looking forward to for every … [Read more...] about NFL schedule 2018: Games to watch for every team
Ever since Rob Gronkowski told reporters he was going to “reflect on the season” after Super Bowl LII, the tight end has been making headlines for the uncertainty surrounding his future in the NFL. Although multiple reports indicate Gronkowski is expected to return to New England in 2018, any reassurance has been quickly challenged by subsequent reports claiming he has yet to make a decision. Opting for early retirement as well as possibly getting traded have both been floated as potential outcomes for the two-time Super Bowl champion. So will Gronkowski be at Gillette Stadium when the Patriots begin their offseason workouts next Monday? If yes, is he there to stay? Neither Gronkowski nor the Patriots have formally addressed their respective plans — despite a series of cryptic tweets from the 28-year-old — and his attendance alone isn’t going to put an end to the matter. Should Gronkowski return for another season of football, … [Read more...] about What’s going on with Rob Gronkowski and Bill Belichick?
Super Bowl Sunday represents the culmination of the year in football – two teams competing to be deemed champion of the most popular sport in America. It’s also a great day to gamble. Earlier in the week we went through all of the best bets you can actually make in Las Vegas on the big game, but one of the defining features of the Super Bowl in recent years has been the ability to bet on all sorts of strange outcomes thanks to the prominence of offshore sportsbooks. How long will the national anthem take? What outfit will the halftime act wear? How many times will Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth mention the point-spread for the game or Tom Brady’s age? Before the dawn of internet gambling these would just be weird questions to be posing to your friends while they try to enjoy the pregame spread at your Super Bowl party. Now? They’re questions of investment. Below we’ve collected the 17 weirdest, most specific, and hopefully most profitable prop bets that … [Read more...] about From Justin Timberlake’s outfit to the length of the national anthem — These are the 17 weirdest prop bets for the Super Bowl
