Patriots News: Tom Brady Isn’t Over Super Bowl Loss To Philadelphia Eagles Yet

“You assume I’m over it? Come on now.”

Even with all the Super Bowl wins; New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is thinking about one that got away.

Furthermore, Brady is talking about the Super Bowl LII loss to Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. This comes on Monday, in the week leading up to a marquee match-up in Philadelphia between the Patriots and the Eagles in week 11.

Here’s what Brady had to say regarding the 41-33 loss that took place on February 4th, 2018.

“You assume I’m over it? Come on now,” Brady said. “That’s a lot of mental scar tissue from that year. That was a tough game. In a lot of ways, we learned from that year and we came back stronger the next year. We won the Super Bowl in ’18. I think everything is a matter of perspective and when you play in that game and you play great teams, you’re not going to win them all. This is not the Harlem Globetrotters vs. the Washington Generals. This is all about tough competition against the best teams. They deserved it that year, and now a couple years later we get a chance to play the organization again. We’ve had a lot changes, they’ve had a lot of changes. It’s totally different circumstances. Huge game for us. Big game for them. The better team is going to win.”

Still, Brady threw for 505 yards that day to go along with 3 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Equally important, it could have been his best Super Bowl in terms of statistics; and it wasn’t good enough to get a ring at the end of the day.

While Sunday in Philadelphia, a win won’t bring back that ring Brady would have won that day in Minneapolis. However, if it seems like Brady is playing with a little added fire on Sunday against the 5-4 Eagles; now you know why.

Finally – with the Patriots installed a 3.5 point favorites – oddsmakers seem to think the Patriots coming off their first loss of the year against Baltimore are the better team. Right now, the Eagles are battling for a division crown against the Dallas Cowboys.
