At 37 years old, Brady is not a mobile quarterback, and like most quarterbacks, he tends to make his mistakes when forced to release the ball before he wants to.
On a short-yardage situation, the Patriots try to run play-action. New England’s starting right guard fails to pick up the defensive tackle, who is crashing toward Brady. The pressure forces Brady to heave up a prayer to Rob Gronkowski. Though Gronk was open, the pass rush caused Brady to lob the ball up high, giving the safety plenty of time to recover and nab the interception.
