ESPN's Michael Smith Tweeted out an interesting video to us earlier this afternoon regarding Tom Brady's late game struggles over the past several seasons, pointing out several stats that certainly raise a few eyebrows.

Smith points out that last week's loss against Seattle was the 7th time the team has lost a game where they lead during the final five minutes in regulation since 2009, tied for the third most number of blown leads over that span.

You can see more in the video above. In the meantime hopefully their late game struggles are behind them and it's a trend that changes during the rest of this season.

On a brighter note they mentioned in a separate Tweet yesterday that the Patriots have gained 440+ yards in 3 straight games, which is tied for the longest single-season streak in the Brady-Belichick era.
