‘A game changer’: Fox Sports’ Jordan Rogers breaks down ‘A Game Changer’ game changers
A game changeman is the one who makes the difference in a game.
It’s something we’ve all done, whether it’s playing a good team against a good opponent or watching a great team get embarrassed by a bad team.
In the case of the 2015 NFL season, the “A Game changer” game changERs were not only Russell Wilson, who helped lead the Seahawks to a Super Bowl, but also the Cleveland Browns, who won the championship with quarterback Josh McCown as their quarterback.
McCown threw for 2,928 yards and 10 touchdowns in the 2015 season and the Browns have since moved on to winning four Super Bowls.
The 2017 edition of the Patriots’ “A game changeer” was their quarterback of the future.
A year ago, the Patriots were a different team.
They lost star receiver Julian Edelman for the season with a torn ACL.
They also lost running back LeGarrette Blount for the year with a fractured right hand.
And the only bright spot for New England was their defense.
The Pats won six games and were the AFC East champions, but it was not enough to propel them to the playoffs.
Instead, the AFC title game was decided by a score of 20-10 in New England.
It was a game that, on paper, seemed impossible.
It was also a game where the Patriots had a chance to win their first Super Bowl in three years.
But Brady was not only a great quarterback but a player who could also be a game changerman.
A week before the AFC championship game, the New England Patriots held their first pregame workout at Gillette Stadium.
This was an opportunity for Brady to show his new teammates what it meant to play against him.
Brady took his reps from one to three.
The first time the two of them lined up together in the first half of a game, they ran for a combined 1,092 yards.
But they would not repeat the feat.
They took their next workout a week later.
The Patriots would not play in the AFC Championship Game.
Instead they would have their second chance at the game.
This time they would play in a playoff game.
It is not easy to break a championship drought, and it is not a game you want to be in.
But in the Patriots defense, the chances of winning a playoff championship were almost impossible.
So when the Patriots held the chance to clinch the AFC South, they took advantage of their opportunity.
They did not do it by running away from the task.
Instead the Patriots kept the pressure on, and on Sunday they came away with the win.
They got to the Super Bowl with a win, and Brady did not allow them to take it away from him.
It started in the second quarter.
The Browns were leading 17-10 with less than two minutes remaining in the game, and New England’s first two drives came to a screeching halt with the game on the line.
Brady led a four-play, 74-yard drive to set up a game-winning touchdown pass from Tom Brady.
Brady finished the game with a career-high 686 yards passing, with seven touchdowns and no interceptions.
But it was the game-changing play that caught the Patriots fans off guard.
The play was a play that had never before been made by the Patriots.
It happened on a play called “Bountygate.”
A fake punt in the fourth quarter was intended for a wide-open Edelman.
Brady was sacked on the play and threw the ball to the slot receiver for a touchdown.
The ball was picked off by the Browns defensive back in the end zone.
The game ended with the Browns leading 23-17 at halftime.
The Browns offense, however, had already gone to the locker room.
A couple of plays later, the play was called back.
A penalty was called on the Browns for illegal contact.
On the play, the Browns offensive lineman ran into the backfield and hit Edelman in the face.
He was immediately carted off the field and was replaced by the injured Brady.
It may have been an unimpressive performance, but Brady did his part to change the momentum of the game in New Hampshire.
The defense had shown enough of a lack of urgency to keep Brady from running out the clock.
Brad was on a mission.
He had already made his first two Pro Bowls during the 2015 regular season.
The next two seasons would see Brady go on to win two more Super Bowl rings with the Patriots as the starter.
Brill had already set the NFL on fire when he started his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Since then, he had won four Super Football Championships, led the NFL in passing yards, touchdown passes, passing yards per game and total offense in each of those seasons.
But the way Brady was able to transform his career was something that could only be accomplished through sheer grit and hard work.When
