Brady looking at extending career beyond 2019

  • Patriots QB Tom Brady'absolutely believes he will play next year

Tom Brady completed 13 of 24 passes for 126 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in a modest display. "I'm going to give it everything I have like I always have", he said.

Tom Brady appears to finally be showing some signs of aging this season, and the quarterback has said in the past that he will retire when he feels he can no longer play at a high level.

NBC announced it will air the Indianapolis-Tennessee game on "Sunday Night Football" for the final game of the regular season.

In his weekly interview Monday with Westwood One's Jim Gray following the Patriots' victory Sunday, which clinched the AFC East for a record 10th straight season, Brady addressed the rumors about his retirement. "I'm going to try to do as best I possibly can". But it would also create a scenario where the victor of the Week 17 AFC South showdown between the 8-6 Indianapolis Colts, assuming they beat the New York Giants (5-9) at home Sunday, and Tennessee Titans (9-6) grabs the final wild card, bouncing Pittsburgh altogether from the playoffs for the first time since 2013. I know I've talked about it for a long time: "I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that", Brady said. It will certainly be a challenge. "I wake up every day excited to go to work".


Over the course of an 11-year career dating to 2008 when the Patriots made him a fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Slater's play and locker room leadership have continued what his predecessor in New England began under head coach Bill Belichick.

Fans anxious about the latter half of that equation may need to take a breath and a step back to fully appreciate what they have starting for them under center, even in a "down" year.

This year's Patriots might be closer in semblance to the run-heavy, Corey Dillon-led teams of the early millennium than the aerial assault squads of the last five years.
