As we announced after Week 1, we're looking to chronicle the Patriots quest on the Road to MetLife Stadium for the Super Bowl. To do this, we're highlighting heroes from each and every game. A weekly Patriots MVP voted by you!
Over the past week, we've asked you guys to weigh in on who you believed was the hero of the Week 6 win over the New Orleans Saints.
So, your Road to MetLife Stadium Week 6 MVP was...
With such a close winner, this one was a tough choice. Tom Brady didn't play the greatest of games, but he turned it on when it counted most, engineering a game winning drive that ended in a 17 yard strike to Kenbrell Thompkins. While a player like Aqib Talib accomplished the impressive feat of holding Jimmy Graham catchless (also helped out by the rest of the team when Talib was injured), Brady's game winner was just too memorable for him to not earn the award.
Surprisingly, it's also Brady's first MVP of the season.
How big of a winner was Brady?
He receives the Road to MetLife Stadium honor with 47.4% of the vote.
Behind him was Aqib Talib with 23.3%.
Then, Kenbrell Thompkins with 17.5%
Stevan Ridley with 9.5%
Stephen Gostowski with 0.7%
