It was a sweet ending to a season that startedoff with a four-game suspension leveled against Brady following an investigation into the "Deflategate" scandal.
Brady, the Patriots and fans have passionately denied allegations of cheating and fans were glad to see Goodell, who issued the suspension, hand their golden "GOAT" the MVP award early Monday morning.

Hard to exaggerate how humiliating this is for Goodell, and how much he deserves it. #Patriots— Dan Kennedy (@dankennedy_nu) February 6, 2017
