Despite a chest thumping 17 yard run late in the game, the Patriots quarterback could be headed outside of New England next season.

When was the last time a 10-2 team was booed off the field?  Details of what lead to it aside, this wasn't a good look, as cracks in the armor continue to show. A late game rally fell short when pass interference wasn't called, and it was just a gross game to begin with. Yes, the refs were atrocious.

Fans have had enough.

But really, even if they won Sunday, a nagging rumor continues to gain steam. 12 Up has reported team insider Tom E. Curran, says Tom Brady is actually poised to leave the team at the end of the season barring a "radical course change" over the next three months of action.

It's no surprise Tom's in a bit of a rut, and this rumor certainly isn't new. Usually, where there's smoke, there's fire. There's also the recently surfaced piece where Tom's dad says his son's fate rests in the hands of Bill Belichick.

Time will tell. The Patriots are onto Cinci.
