Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots is probably one of the most controversial moments the NFL has seen in quite a while.
Beginning next week, we will be able to rewatch some of Brady’s greatest moments from his time with the Patriots as NBCSN will air some classic Sunday Night Football games each night and we will see the Patriots in most of them. Pete Bevacqua, President of NBC Sports Group, stated:
“We thank Commissioner Goodell and the NFL for working with us to present this special lineup of NBC Sunday Night Football games, which will entertain fans over seven nights while also helping to support COVID-19 related fundraising with on-screen messaging.”
Here’s a list of all Patriots games that you will be able to see next week:
- March 30- Denver vs. New England (Week 12, 2013), 9:30 p.m.
- April 3- Indianapolis vs. New England (Week 10, 2009), 7 p.m.
- April 5- Kansas City vs. New England (Week 6, 2018), 9:30 p.m.
- April 19- Seattle vs. New England (Week 10, 2016), 8 p.m.
- April 26- Green Bay vs. New England (Week 15, 2010), 8 p.m.
Even though Brady has left, the Patriots are still focused on winning games and titles. Defensive captain Devin McCourty spoke about this during an recent interview:
“Yeah, my goal is always winning as many games as possible. I don’t think you ever come into a season and talk, ‘Super Bowl, Super Bowl,’ it is about improving and winning games along the way. I think that will stay the same. Like I said, now you have a lot of time to be on Twitter and stuff and a lot of what I have seen is people tweeting me like, ‘Enjoy what you guys had. It’s over. You guys won’t win a game.’ I think that is natural, though. I think if I was a fan and I watched the team and I watched a guy for a long time and he left and he was so great, I would say that team would be terrible too.
“It’s expected, but I think it is our job as players to go out there and compete when we get that opportunity. I just think for us as a team, my 10 years there, that is always going to be the same. I am passionate about that, (Matthew) Slater, the coaching staff, so I don’t think that is going to change. That is how we’re going to be. I expect is that is how we will lead the team and get new guys, young guys to follow the same way.”
We can’t wait to see what’s next for both the Patriots and Brady.
