Since 2001, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have been the NFL’s version of the dynamic duo. They have found almost every opponent’s weakness and attacked with Brady under center after taking over for Drew Bledsoe.
Everyone knows how much of a dynasty New England has become since, but the Patriots have had some pretty interesting losses. Some of those losses came from quarterbacks that had slim chances of defeating one of the greatest of all-time.
Some of these lesser-known quarterbacks even managed to beat Brady more than once. Can you guess who?
Orton managed to beat the New England Patriots for two different teams. The first victory came in 2009, when Josh McDaniels took over for the Broncos and upset his former mentor Bill Belichick in a 20-17 overtime win.
The second win came in 2014 in Week 17. Orton’s Bills defeated a playoff-bound Patriots team in a 17-9 snooze fest. Following the win, Orton would announce his retirement shortly after the conclusion of the season.
