Tom Brady throws the saddest spiral of his season and still completes it for a big gain

BY Andre Vergara • January 14, 2017

Tom Brady has been near-perfect this season, throwing 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions while winning 11 of 12 games.

But he was anything but flawless in the first half of Saturday night's playoff opener against the Houston Texans, getting picked off on a tipped pass that was just out of Michael Floyd's reach ...

... then throwing this dying duck in the second quarter ... which he somehow completed to Chris Hogan for a 45-yard gain.

But Brady's magic mostly was muffled by the Texans in the first half.

In the second half, Brady actually threw another pick, but Brock Osweiler threw three and the Pats took advantage to pull away.

Guess it was Brady's night after all.
