The Many Faces of Tom Brady During His History-Making Super Bowl Game

Tom Brady takes the cake for best facial expressions at Super Bowl LI.

The Patriots quarterback led his team from down 25 points against the Atlanta Falcons to the team’s fifth title win, completing the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Brady threw for 466 yards and two touchdowns in the incredible win — and the 39-year-old NFL star managed to have pretty much every emotion a human can feel along his arduous journey to a fifth ring.

He started off Sunday’s game happy, confident and cool — toothy grin and all.

But when the Falcons rolled out a big lead in the second quarter — No. 12 lost his patience. And decided it was time to fight like hell.
