Tom Brady's used to tough games, but Sunday's stunning 23-20 win over Baltimore wasn't exactly one of his best.

Brady finished 22-of-36 for 239 yards and was held without a touchdown, and also threw two interceptions.

During the postgame celebration held at midfield following the victory, Brady admitted it wasn't his best game.

"I sucked pretty bad today, but our defense saved us," said Brady,  I'm going to try and go out and do a better job in a couple weeks.  But I'm proud of my teammates."

Brady then credited the fans for making sure they had a real home field advantage.

"You fans were unbelievable today.  You're the 12th man, we needed it.  We're going to try and go out and kick some butt in a couple weeks."

The place was loud, with the NFL Network's Stacey Dales tweeting that it was so loud that the "press box was vibrating".

Brady tied Joe Montana for most playoff victories ever after winning his 16th career postseason game.  They'll now wait to see the winner of the NFC Championship to find out who they'll play in Indianapolis in two weeks.

According to the NFL PR Director Brian McCarthy, the Patriots will be the home team in the Super Bowl, and will have the option of wearing either their dark or white jersey.
