Tom Brady was off balance all game in Sunday’s 20-18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game.

The Broncos relentlessly pressured Brady and his quick release from start to finish. The Patriots quarterback, in fact, was battered like no other player at his position all season.

Pretty incredible, and it speaks to the furious pursuit of the Broncos’ pass rush. 

With that said, Brady and the Patriots were one play away from forcing overtime. A late touchdown pass from Brady to tight end Rob Gronkowski put New England within a two-point conversion from tying, but their pass play fell short.
