Bill Belichick not interested in talking about Tom Brady's future

Bill Belichick not interested in talking about Tom Brady's future

The New England Patriots quarterback is 41 years old but is still very passionate about the game.

"I absolutely believe I will". "I know I've talked about it a long time. I'm going to try to do as best (as) I possibly can". I feel ready to go. Brady then went to acknowledge, "It will certainly be a challenge. I don't take any of these things for granted, but I hope I can keep playing, and I hope I can keep playing at a championship level".

His streak of Pro Bowl appearances snapped earlier in the week, special teams captain Matthew Slater's play against the Buffalo Bills helped the Patriots clinch their 10th consecutive AFC East Division title.

While New England has looked far from dominant this season, the team is still in prime position for a first-round bye after the Houston Texans' upset loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. As prolific as his career has been, Brady has begun to show signs of that aging he has defied for many years now and has not almost been as sharp in recent weeks. That passion can extend a player's career. His current contract runs through the 2019 season.

Brady eclipsed the 4,000-yard passing mark this season for the seventh time in the last eight years, but his 11 interceptions are his most since 2013.

Asked about his reported MCL injury, which reporters say has hampered him this season, Brady said he's "feeling good", particularly compared to other seasons around this time. "It's been 15 weeks of football, and there's always bumps and bruises you deal with".

The Baltimore Ravens tonight earned their biggest road win in a long time.

After falling to the Dolphins in Week 14 and the Steelers in Week 15, the Patriots fell to 9-5 on the season and saw their spot in the AFC playoff race drop from the No. 2 seed to the No. 3 seed.
