This one meant a little more for Tom Brady.
The New England Patriots quarterback admitted before Super Bowl LI that he was dedicating the game to his mother, Gaylnn Brady, who has been battling health issues for 18 months. Brady then went out and sealed his stance as the greatest quarterback of all time, engineering the largest comeback in Super Bowl history to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime.
Brady’s entire extended family witnessed the win, and after the confetti had settled, the Brady clan celebrated together on the field at Houston’s NRG Stadium.
Among those in the photo are Brady’s father, Tom Brady Sr. (second from left), his mother, Gaylnn (third from right), his three sisters, his wife, Gisele, and the family’s several children. Boston Red Sox fans also will notice Kevin Youkilis (far right), who is married to Brady’s sister, Julie.
Brady also posted another photo of him celebrating with his children after the win.
Needless to say, it was a pretty special night for TB12 and everyone in the Brady bunch.
