A record-setting day for Tom Brady

A record-setting day for Tom Brady

There was no postseason clunker for Tom Brady Sunday. In fact, his performance Sunday was one of the best of his NFL record 24 playoff wins. 

PATRIOTS 36, STEELERS 17

Brady completed 32 of 42 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns with no turnovers. His passing yard total is a Patriots postseason record. 

No. 12’s dominance helped Chris Hogan set a Patriots postseason record with 180 receiving yards on nine catches. Two of his grabs went for touchdowns, including a 39-yard touchdown on a flea-flicker in the second quarter. 

The previous Pats' postseason record was held by Deion Branch, who had 153 receiving yards in the Patriots' divisional round loss to the Broncos in the 2005 season. Joining Hogan atop the stat sheet was Julian Edelman, who had eight catches for 118 yards and a touchdown.

Legendary broadcaster Gil Santos passes away at the age of 78

Legendary Patriots broadcaster Gil Santos passed away today on his birthday at the age of 78.

The long-time voice of the Pats served in the booth for a total of 36 years, mostly alongside former Patriots kicker Gino Cappelletti. Santos also served as the morning sports anchor for WBZ-TV.

Santos was in the booth for 743 Patriots games, 15 playoff runs and 6 Super Bowls. He was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013, only the second non-player to earn that honor. 

Gil Santos was born in Acushnet and spent most of his adult life living in the town of Raynham.
