Not only did he help engineer the largest comeback in Super Bowl history to win his fifth championship, but his mother, Galynn was in the stands.
“She’s been through a lot. Way harder than what I went through (Sunday) night,” Brady said Monday morning. “My dad’s been there every step of the way. They set such a great example for me. All families go through challenging times personally, but she has a lot of love, a lot of support.
“I was happy (Sunday) night to celebrate with her. She hadn’t been to a game all year. What a helluva game for her to be at. It was really great.”
In a pregame interview with Westwood One’s Jim Gray, Brady said, “She’s the one I want to win it for.”
Brady was named the MVP after the Patriots rallied from a 28-3 deficit to win 34-28 in overtime over the Atlanta Falcons.
Brady posted a photo on Instagram after the game saying: “It takes a team. And so much love. #NeverStopBelieving.”
