As an aside, remember Brady's first playoff game was the Oakland "tuck rule" game. ...just the first of many things that would be ruled in his favor. I wish we had a guardian angel looking out for us

...but I digress, sorry

EDIT: Went back to check. Vs. the Colts, the Pats scored 3 times on the ground and Ty Law had a pick-six in that first Colts game. In rather delightful news (to me) Major Forehead (Manning) was picked off 3 times (including the pick-six).

In his second game, the stats indicate Brady was tentative; 12 of 24 for 87 yds, no TDs or picks. Orrrrr maybe Belichick "had the handcuffs on" his young QB. Or maybe Brady was getting used to the speed of the game and was being cautious. Anyway, the 'Phins' running game controlled the clock and their defense shut down Antowain Smith (10 carries/47 yds/1 TD).
Good stuff in there, thanks for sharing.

I am proud to say that I knew his first playoff game was the infamous snowy game where the ref rolled out the Tuck Rule. I remember thinking, at the time, "Wow, that is destiny changing type stuff going on right there." At that point, you knew stars were aligning. The call itself was legitimate, it's just the idea that the blitzing defender was only a split second LATE in getting to Brady. Otherwise, it's game over and no Super Bowl for Brady.

I think of the Franco reception, the Immaculate Reception, when I recall the Patriots-Raiders game where the Tuck Rule came into play. Crazy plays that alter NFL history.
