If The Playoffs Started Today: Tom Brady Is Good At Football Edition

bradybillsSince returning from his four-game suspension, Tom Brady has been on fire. The four-time Super Bowl winner leads the NFL with a 133.9 passer rating.

He has thrown 12 touchdown passes and has yet to thrown an interception. We already knew he was excellent but he is already a lead candidate for MVP.

Brady’s Pats lead the AFC while the Dallas Cowboys are the NFC’s top seed at the moment. Yet, a few things to take stock of after last Sunday’s action.

  • The Vikings have lost two straight and look like they are ready for a plunge.
  • Remember the New York Giants? For the moment, they are the NFC’s #6 seed.
  • I’ll be a little surprised if the current six AFC teams are somehow disrupted.

#1 – New England Patriots (AFC East champion, bye)

#2 – Oakland Raiders (AFC West champion, bye)
