They say attitude is contagious.
And when your leader is Tom Brady, it’s hard not to feed off his fire, drive and devotion to the game.
When the New England Patriots found themselves down 33-28 with about two minutes left against the Houston Texans on Sunday, the quarterback knew he had to rally his troops if they were to execute the game-winning drive.
“We’re down, we’ve got to get it, we’ve got to make something happen,” Brady is heard saying on the sideline before the 75-yard final drive.
With 23 seconds left, Brady and wide receiver Brandin Cooks connected on a touchdown pass that helped seal the 36-33 victory.
Brady complete 25-of-35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns on the day. And it was recently announced that he earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second week in a row. It is the fourth time in his career that he has earned the award in back-to-back weeks.
