As they get closer and closer to the regular season beginning and maybe proving some people right with their Super Bowl predictions, the New England Patriots are playing their third preseason game of the year on Friday night against the Carolina Panthers. And well, Tom Brady is not getting off to the best start, to say the least.
Early on in the first quarter, Brady got under center to take a snap and unleash his offensive firepower for the entire NFL world to see. The man who used to hold the single-season record for touchdown passes was ready to put on a show.
Well, the only problem was, Touchdown Tom couldn’t keep his feet under him.

Yeah, that’s not the way that you want to get things started in the third preseason game of the year, which is generally the game in which everyone gets to see what the regular season will look like. Game number three is considered the dress rehearsal for the season, as the starters generally don’t play much next week.
Hopefully the night for Tom goes a lot better than it started here on Friday night.
