Tom Brady admitted the ‘Tuck Rule” changed the course of his career
The infamous and controversial “tuck rule” changed the course of NFL history.
In Brady’s first playoff game against the Raiders, he was hit by Charles Woodson and the ball came loose.
It was a clear fumble, but the refs ruled that Brady had attempted to pass the ball and they ruled it an incomplete pass.
The Patriots ended up winning the game and Brady said if they would have lost, he would have been the backup QB heading into 2002.
