Tom Brady has passed for fewer than 200 yards in three consecutive games, but the Patriots star quarterback found another way to help in New England's 43-22 divisional round playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night.
"Yeah, it's been a while since I've done that, so, I was just happy to help the team," Brady quipped after the game. "Maybe I'll try to renegotiate my contract or something, doing more work or something."
To be clear, Brady hasn't done this in a really long time.
"I think (the last time I held) was when I played in the Orange Bowl 14 or 15 years ago (with Michigan)," Brady said. "I don't even do it in practice. They said, 'Get in there and do it,' and I said, 'What do I say?' But we figured it out."
Gostkowski, who was forced to take over punting duties, told reporters that Bill Belichick has, indeed, recruited Brady to hold for kicks during practice, "but it's not something you work on every week."
