Do you remember the Tuck Rule? Las Vegas RaidersFans, it's not your favorite thing to happen to your franchise. But, just to refresh your memory: in the 2001 AFC divisional match, Tom BradyDrew Bledsoe, who was at that time still Drew Bledsoe’s successor and not the likely best quarterback of all times, switched to pass. Charles Woodson tackled Brady, Brady lost the ball, and the Raiders won. The New England Patriots' Cinderella Season was over.
Except Brady hadn't fumbled. Unknown rule stated that Brady looked like he was tucking the ball in his chest but it was technically a passing motion and the play was therefore ruled incomplete. The Patriots won the game by winning in overtime. Adam VinatieriField goal. Brady would be the center for the Patriots' six Super Bowl wins.
The fact that Brady, in a piggyback of Justin Bieber's request for people to “tell him some honest things” on TikTok, whispered a confession about the game that it might have been an error, is not likely to bring much comfort to Raiders loyalists.

Brady is, of course, trolling here. It's probably worse.
