Playoff Jerseys on Display

The Hall is celebrating Patriots playoff records and milestone performances by displaying game-worn jerseys from the Patriots Divisional and AFC Championship games.

The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon is now displaying game-worn jerseys from the Patriots 41-28 Divisional Playoff win over the Los Angeles Chargers and the 37-31 AFC Championship overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Tom Brady set a new (and another) NFL Playoff record for most consecutive pass attempts without an interception. With 44 attempts vs. LA, Brady finished the game with 228 consecutive postseason pass attempts without throwing an interception dating back to Super Bowl LI in 2017. Brady completed 34-of-44 passes in the game for 343 yards and a touchdown.

He broke the record previously held by Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who threw 226 playoff passes without an interception between 2007 and 2012. Brady’s navy blue home jersey from the win is on display. His streak came to an end in the Championship game against Kansas City when he threw a 2nd quarter interception in the endzone. Brady’s record stands at 235 consecutive playoff passes without an interception.

Julian Edelman’s big day against LA is also being celebrated at The Hall. Edelman caught nine passes for a postseason career high 151 yards in the win over LA. His nine receptions moved him past Reggie Wayne (93) into second place for all-time postseason receptions with 98 behind only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (151). It was also Edelman’s fifth playoff game with 100-plus receiving yards. Only Rice (8) and Michael Irvin (6) have more 100-yard postseason games. Edelman’s game-worn jersey is on display from his performance against the Chargers.

Rookie running back Sony Michel’s game-worn jersey from the Divisional round is also hanging in The Hall. Michel had a spectacular playoff debut when he rushed 24 times for 129 yards and three first-half touchdowns against the Chargers. He became the first Patriots rookie to eclipse 100 rushing yards in a playoff game and the 10th Patriots running back ever to do so. His 129 rushing yards was the fifth best rushing performance in Patriots playoff history.  He also became the first Patriots rookie to score multiple touchdowns in a playoff game. Robert Edwards was the only other rookie to score a postseason touchdown back in 1998. Michel continued his ground attack with 113 yards of rushing and 2 touchdowns against the Chiefs, putting his playoff totals at 240 yards and 5 TDs going into SB LIII.

Multiple veterans on the team reached milestones together with their appearances in the AFC Championship game. In his 11th year with the Patriots, Matthew Slater played in his 8th consecutive AFC Championship game. Most notable for his “Heads” call which won the overtime coin toss, Slater has been one of the best special teams players in all of football throughout his career. Slater was also joined, for the 8th straight year, by 9 year Patriot Devin McCourty. McCourty locked down the Chiefs air game from his up top safety postion, holding Tyreek Hill to just 1 reception for 42 yards. The most tenured Patriot besides Brady is the 13 year veteran kicker Stephen Gostkowski. Gostkowski also played in his 8th consecutive AFC Championship game. He will now make his 6th Super Bowl appearance, which is tied for second most all-time with Mike Lodish.

All three of their jerseys will be on display to represent the amazing milestones and accomplishments from the 2018 Patriots playoff season.
