Tom Brady and the New England Patriots added another win to their playoff history, routing the Los Angeles Chargers, 41-28, on Sunday.
The final score made the game look closer than it really was. The Patriots went up 35-7 at halftime, moving the ball with ease while their defense suffocated the Chargers. It continued in the second half until the Chargers scored some desperation touchdowns late in the game.
After the game, while discussing their upcoming AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Brady mocked critics who wondered if the Patriots’ run was finally over.
“I know everyone thinks we suck, we can’t win any games,” Brady said after crediting the Chiefs. “We’ll see.”
It’s a rare moment of transparency from Brady, who tries to stray from making headlines.
Despite a regular season performance that was below his normal standards, Brady looked as sharp as ever on Sunday. He threw 343 yards on 34-of-44 passes, with one touchdown, and led the Patriots downfield plenty of times, only to have his running backs punch in the ball.
The Patriots beat the Chiefs in Week 6 this season, but will have to win on the road to make the Super Bowl this season. It seems Brady has plenty of motivation heading into next week.

Dude. I don’t think anyone wants to play an angry Tom Brady. ????????????
