Tom Brady throws pick-6, tries and fails to tackle Cary Williams
It was not a great start to Tom Brady's season on Friday.
After not playing in preseason game No. 1 for New England, he took the field vs. the Eagles on Friday night, and on his first series, he threw an interception that Philadelphia cornerback Cary Williams returned for a 77-yard touchdown.
It likely wasn't Brady's fault considering the intended target for the pass, tight end Steve Maneri, looked confused and then turned the wrong way before Brady's pass landed in the arms of Williams.
It must have been a sweet moment for Williams, who's been adamant lately about calling the Patriots a bunch of cheaters (and who immediately came out of the game with a hamstring injury).
That might explain why Brady did his best to knock Williams out of bounds on his interception return. But you also don't want your future Hall of Fame quarterback doing this in a freakin' preseason game.
Nice try, Tom. But I imagine your team prefers you never to do that again.
