Tom Brady Wore A Massive Coat, And The Internet Loved It

Tom Brady's coat is giant.

It was a cool 40 degrees during the AFC championship game Sunday night and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was just trying to keep warm. So he donned a coat that would have fit the Michelin Man.

Folks on Twitter could not get enough of Brady’s giant jacket, which inspired a fair amount of “Deflategate” jokes. 

There were other references, too.

But SB Nation seems to have figured out what was really going on:

The Patriots beat the Steelers 36-17, and will play the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.
