Brady paid tribute to his mamma, who has been unable to attend games this year due to an undisclosed illness.  Brady said the win was great, and coming from behind was tough – but that his mom has been through a lot ‘way harder’ than what he went through in the final quarter of the season.

The Super Bowl MVP said ‘all families go through challenging times…but she has a lot of support and love.” And thankfully he said, his dad has been there every step of the way for his mom.

You can’t help but at least like a kid that goes out and plays his heart out and then dedicates his efforts to his mom and his family.  You just can’t.
