Tom Brady cracks joke about his dropped pass in Super Bowl 52

Tom Brady cracks joke about his dropped pass in Super Bowl 52

You can bet Super Bowl 52 remains a sore subject for Tom Brady, but the Patriots quarterback still has a sense of humor about one rough moment from that game.

Brady shared a photo of himself making a catch during Patriots practice on Tuesday and quipped about fantasy football owners drafting him in PPR (point per reception) leagues.

Of course, Brady knew what to expect from the Twitter mob after posting a photo like that. The six-time Super Bowl champion's infamous dropped pass vs. the Philadelphia Eagles would have led to plenty of jokes had he not gotten ahead of them with one of his own:

Well played, Tom.

While we (hopefully) won't see Brady line up as a wide receiver all that often this season, the 42-year-old did see his fantasy stock rise with the reinstatement of one of his favorite targets, Josh Gordon.

How Eagles' Brandon Graham uses Tom Brady to cheer himself up on bad days

How Eagles' Brandon Graham uses Tom Brady to cheer himself up on bad days

If you're in a bad mood, it helps to recall happier times.

It just so happens that one of Brandon Graham's happiest moments came at the expense of the New England Patriots.

The Eagles defensive end famously recorded a strip sack on Tom Brady with 2:21 remaining in Super Bowl LII, a crucial play that thwarted New England's comeback attempt and helped Philadelphia score a 41-33 upset.

According to NBC Sports' Peter King, Graham relives that play quite often. From King's "Football Morning in America" column Monday:

Graham told me he has a video of him strip-sacking Tom Brady in the biggest moment of Super Bowl (LII) on his phone, and when he’s having a bad day, he’ll watch it.

Brady and the Patriots probably never want to see that play again. But they found a different way of cheering themselves up by rebounding to win Super Bowl LIII the following year, as Brady now has shining moments from six Super Bowl titles to look back on should he ever need a pick-me-up.

Michael Bennett's injury to elderly charges dropped

Michael Bennett's injury to elderly charges dropped

The charges against new Patriots defensive end Michael Bennett for injury to elderly reportedly have been dropped.

Vivian King, chief of staff to Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, said Bennett's case was "dismissed in the interest of justice" per David Barron of the Houston Chronicle.

Bennett was accused of pushing an elderly, paraplegic woman out of the way to celebrate with his brother, Martellus, after the Patriots beat the Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Last year, Bennett's lawyer said the case would eventually be exposed as "ludicrous."

The Patriots received Bennett in a trade with the Eagles last month and reworked his contract on Tuesday.
