Tom Brady Calls The Patriots An Underdog, Says "Everyone Thinks We Suck"
When the New England Patriots took on the Los Angeles Chargers in their AFC divisional round matchup on Sunday, pundits were split on who would win the game. On one hand, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have championship pedigree and experience, meanwhile, the Chargers had a better season overall. Either way, the experience of the Patriots proved to be too much, and they came away with a 41-28 victory. After the game, Brady spoke on the team's doubters, with an interesting quote that had some scratching their hands.
“It’ll be a good game,” Brady said to CBS’ Tracy Wolfson. “They’re a good team. We played them earlier this year. I know everyone thinks we suck and can’t win any games. We’ll see. So it will be fun.”

That's right, Brady. the five-time Super Bowl champion believes people seriously think the Patriots are no good. Perhaps the underdog claims are a motivation tactic for his team as the Patriots are set to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.
Considering Brady picked up 343 passing yards and a touchdown in the win, the 41-year-old QB is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Patriots and the Chiefs played earlier this season, with the Patriots winning off of a last-second field goal by a score of 43-40.
