After falling to the Dolphins in Week 14 and the Steelers in Week 15, the Patriots fell to 9-5 on the season and saw their spot in the AFC playoff race drop from the No. 2 seed to the No. 3 seed.

"I absolutely believe I will (come back next season)", Brady said during an appearance on Westwood One Sports, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN. And I'm going to try to do it as best as I possibly can. Despite that, the Patriots have struggled at times this season and now sport a record of 10-5. "I know I've talked about it for a long time". I dread the day that Brady will announce his retirement. It will certainly be a challenge.
