Tom Brady finally addressed the thumb injury that sent New England into a panic over the last five days. Moments after leading the Patriots to an incredible comeback win over the Jaguars, and two weeks away from playing in his eighth Super Bowl, Brady delivered a message to a jubilant Gillette Stadium while holding the Lamar Hunt trophy. 

“I said, ‘we’ll see,’” Brady quipped. “How’d it go?”

Brady, who went 9-for-14 for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter against the best defense in the NFL, answered his own question.

“It went pretty good,” he said. “Coach Belichick doesn’t like us talking about injuries much. But just for you guys here: it was a pretty good cut. I dealt with it the best I could. I’m lucky to have the best teammates in the world. Without them, we’re not standing here getting ready to go to Minneapolis playing in the Super Bowl.”

Belichick praised his entire team.

“We’ve got a great players,” he said. “I’m really proud of these players. They did a great job today.”

At the start of the trophy presentation, owner Robert Kraft also gave the fans some love.

“How great are these coaches and players?,” he said. “But I have never heard Gillette Stadium as loud as it was tonight. Thank you all.”
