Saturday’s AFC games were filled with surprises. After the Texans beat the Bills, 22-19, in overtime, the Patriots-Titans game ended in a shocking loss for the Patriots that may have effectively ended their dynasty.
The Patriots home loss (20-13) means they won’t be advancing to face the Baltimore Ravens. If you missed the game, Brady threw a pick-six that was caught by Logan Ryan.
Wow. The Patriots are stunned at home and lose to the Titans.— GBP Daily (@GBPdaily) January 5, 2020
In what may be Tom Brady’s last throw, it’s a pick-6 to his former teammate Logan Ryan.
Twitter reacted accordingly to what could be Brady’s last game as a Patriot, the fact that the defending AFC champions aren’t in the playoffs, and what the future holds for Brady.

Everyone will blame Pats Def for this loss, but that Def only gave up 14 pts. Let the record show. A Tom Brady led Pats offense scored 13 pts at hm. #FactsMatter— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) January 5, 2020

In the post-game press conference, Brady addressed rumors of retiring, describing it as “hopefully unlikely.” He also had a message to his fans who have stuck with him throughout the years, saying, “I appreciate it. I try to do the right thing out there. Who knows what the future holds? So we’ll leave it at that.”

Antonio Brown, who had a short stint on the Patriots before getting cut, reacted to his former team’s loss, possibly sending some shots (“Seeing the people who tried to hurt you fail is the best inner feeling ! Look at me now Godsplan,” he wrote in a deleted tweet) and telling Brady to call him.
