Strangely absent from those players however was Carmelo Anthony, who you would expect to hear from considering he is the star of the franchise but it’s possible he had to be careful with what he said since he still has to deal with owner James Dolan.

Despite Brady’s greatness, the comeback doesn’t happen without the contributions of James White, who finished with 141 total yards and three touchdowns, including the game winner.
