Going face-to-face against the Philadelphia Eagles at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota, the Patriots will look for their third Super Bowl win in the past four seasons, which would be the second time doing so during the run. Things began going south after the coach called out Brady's performance in New England's AFC Divisional Round win over the Houston Texans previous year.
According to Wickersham, Brady has grown more frustrated with Belichick's criticism of him. And there's a good chance this won't be Brady's last Super Bowl go-around, as he's frequently expressed his desire to play into his mid-40s. In the 2005 season, Brady and the Pats lost to Denver in the divisional round.
And as Brady orchestrated his 26th and 27th playoff victories, he completed 67 percent of his passes for 627 yards and five touchdowns.

USA scientists captured and fitted collars equipped with Global Positioning System and "bear cam" to nine cub-less female bears. Their energy consumption as calculated during the study was 1.6 times higher than previously thought.
The quarterback said Monday he hasn't "thought about" whether or not he'll continue to appear on WEEI following the Super Bowl and would, per the Globe, "table" his decision until after the Super Bowl. While Brady gets ready for a chance at uncharted territory - no one in National Football League history has won six rings as a player - the debates about his legacy have raged on. Brady sure didn't and is still - almost two months and five victories later - upset about the pair he threw during the Monday night loss in Miami on December 11. Brady had no problems against the Jaguars and had 12 stitches removed last week. It's the No. 1 stat that leads to winning and losing games, turnover differential, and when we don't turn the ball over, we have a very, very high percentage of winning. He did all that by playing just 15 games and sitting out the fourth quarter of a couple others. "It kind of shaped me and molded the way I think and how I handle our business on a daily basis". They have also gotten phone calls from Patriots fans, hoping to talk to the man himself. "We had two camp practices where all of the guys were just beat, and he cut the meetings short a little bit, let guys get more times for recovery".
Even at 40, Brady put up another spectacular season in spite of the fact that one of his primary targets, wide receiver Julian Edelman, suffered a season-ending injury in the preseason.
