Tom Brady gave his haters something to cheer about on Sunday.
He threw two interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown.
It was the first time Brady had thrown multiple interceptions in an opener since 2003, and he recorded just his fourth loss in a season opener, ESPN reported. (To add insult to interceptions, the Patriots won behind quarterback Cam Newton.)
Brady (23 of 36 for 239 yards and two touchdowns) scored the first touchdown of the game, but the mistakes hurt.
“I made just some bad, terrible turnovers,” Brady said, per ESPN. “It’s hard to win, turning the ball over like that. So I’ve obviously gotta do a lot better job.”
Going to be fun to watch his man tantrums this season!!

We all agree that what Tom Brady did in today’s game undoes his entire legacy in New England, right?
