Tom Brady really, really wants to win Sunday night.

Like, he really wants to win.

The New England Patriots quarterback has a bad taste in his mouth after falling to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII last season. But there’s renewed hope, as the Pats will square off against the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday.

Brady has seemed more fired up for this tilt than usual, and in an interview with Jim Gray on Westwood One ahead of the game, the signal-caller seemed to reveal why.

Given this is Brady’s ninth Super Bowl, five of which he’s won, that’s no small comment there at the end — even if he may have been slightly facetious.

Brady already said he’s committed to continue playing until he’s no longer effective, but it’s clear that winning this one will mean quite a bit to the legendary quarterback.
