It's long been hinted that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made a deal with the Devil somewhere in between 2000 and 2002, when he went from a no-name backup to a Super Bowl winner. The deal also reportedly included dating the world's most famous supermodel and perks to be named later (a run at the Senate, perhaps?).
As first noted by the Boston Globe's ObnoxiousBoston Fan, NBC took it upon itself to remind us of the deal on Sunday night during the Broncos-Chiefs showdown, when it repeatedly showed Brady looking just like Beelzebub while promoting next week's Holy War between the Brady-led Pats and the Peyton Manning-led Broncos.
