Sad Tom Brady becomes meme after Super Bowl interception

Tom Brady became a viral internet meme before Super Bowl LI even entered halftime after he threw the only interception he's ever thrown in a postseason game.

The New England Patriots quarterback threw a pick-six to Falcons cornerback Robert Alford at the end of the second quarter. Alford returned the interception for 82 yards, putting Atlanta up 21-0. Adding insult to injury, Brady made a poor diving attempt to tackle Alford.

The interception and failed tackle set Twitter on fire as the Patriots trailed the Falcons 21-3, with dozens of posts poking fun at the four-time Super Bowl champion for the bad play that came within an uncharacteristically bad first half.
