Brady's second half QBR is 91.3 in the last three games
For the past three weeks, the Patriots managed to dig themselves out of at least a 10 point deficit to comeback and take the victory against the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, and Cleveland Browns, respectively. Nobody has stolen the show more than quarterback Tom Brady. He has shown the clutch gene was initially his claim to fame early in his career. In these past three games, Brady's second-half QBR speaks for itself;

With the late-game magic that Brady and the Patriots have shown, the team is currently in control of its own destiny, holding on to the #1 seed in the AFC. With crucial injuries to star players like Rob Gronkowski, Jerod Mayo, and Vince Wilfork, the Pats will need the home field advantage that the first seed will give them. Hopefully Brady can also keep the second half performance at a high level while the entire team tries to come out of the gates a little bit better than these last three games.
Though the Patriots have been riddled with serious injuries, Tom Brady has shown a serious increase in playmaking as the season has gone on. Keep note too, that the Giants made it to the Super Bowl and won by Eli Manning's late game performances throughout the entire 2011 season. Maybe Brady could take a page out of Manning's strategy book to win a Super Bowl with a not-so-dominant team and clutch performance. Oh wait, Eli took that out of Brady's book first.
