35 82 98 112 113 168 | Tom Brady and Patriots defeat Steelers, December 17, 2017 +Tom's 35-attempts & Super Bowl 52


Tom Brady with the 35 attempts!  LOL!


8/3/1977 = 8+3+1+9+7+7 = 35



Remember, the Super Bowl to close out the 98th season is on the 35th day of the year, February 4.

You have to love the 168-yards receiving.


Tom is now 11-2 against the Steelers, who came into the game 11-2 on the season.


Tom also just became 8-2 in the regular season against Steelers.

In a real football game, the Steelers receiver would have been pushed out of bounds by the New England defenders... this was the play that set up the finish near the goalline.

ALSO, something worth thinking about is this...

Both teams became 11-3 in the regular season.

If Tom Brady loses to the Steelers in the playoffs, he'll be 11-3 against them all-time.



ESPN with the 1:13...

Something strange is this... from the conclusion of the 113th World Series, November 1, to the AFC Championship, is 81-days.  It's also the Pope's 81st birthday...
