New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady was booed off by supporters after the defending NFL champions lost for the second week running at home to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brady, who is the most successful NFL player of all time with six Super Bowl titles, was on the receiving end of a chorus of boos from Patriots fans at half-time as his offence failed to fire.
The 42-year-old’s form didn’t improve after the interval as the Patriots slumped to a 23-16 defeat to their AFC rivals, and he was seen with strapping on his throwing arm during his post-match press conference.

TOM BRADY’S CAREER
Team: New England Patriots (2000-)
Six Super Bowls (2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, 2016, 2018)
Nine AFC titles (2001, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2011, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018)
Four Super Bowl MVP awards (2001, 2003, 2014, 2016)
Three NFL MVP awards (2007, 2010, 2017)
The quarterback himself threw just one touchdown, was intercepted once and threw for a mediocre total of 169 yards.
Despite the loss, the Patriots still have a season record of 10-3 which will likely see them through to the play-offs, and they are still top of their AFC East division.
Brady, who has won three out of the past five Super Bowls, was keen to downplay the significance of the last two weeks – the Patriots lost last week to the Houston Texans.
‘I don’t want to make any predictions’, Brady said at his post-match press conference.
‘I think we come in with a plan to get better every week and try to win each game. Each game takes on a little different feel and the situations are a little different, and it’s a different team every year, too.

‘So, I may have certain experience doing things, but this particular team as a whole hasn’t been through different situations.
‘So, you just try to work through them over the course of the whole season, and we have three big games to go, and we’ve got to get back to winning football.’
New England have three games left of the regular season, away to the Cincinatti Benglas next week before two games at home to Buffalo and the Miami Dolphins
