ESPN Readies for Seven-Hour Tom Brady Marathon on March 22
ESPN will present a seven-hour programming marathon this Sunday, March 22, highlighting Tom Brady’s Championship performances with the New England Patriots over the past two decades. The combination of NFL’s Greatest Games and Super Bowl Highlights specials will feature nine seminal games – including condensed versions of all six Super Bowl victories – from Brady’s time with the Patriots.
The seven-hour block begins at 12 p.m. ET with NFL’s Greatest Games: 2001 AFC Divisional Round, Brady’s first playoff game (the Tuck Rule Game) – a 16-13 overtime win against the Oakland Raiders in a snowstorm at Foxboro Stadium. At 6:30 p.m., NFL’s Greatest Games: Super Bowl LIII concludes the marathon with a look back at Brady’s final Super Bowl appearance when he led the Pats to two scores in the fourth quarter for a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
This week, Brady announced he was leaving the Patriots after 20 seasons to become a free agent. The most accomplished quarterback in NFL history, the three-time league MVP has won six Super Bowl titles (in nine appearances) while leading the Patriots to 17 straight years with 10 or more wins – the longest streak in NFL history.
ESPN’s Brady marathon will run simultaneously to The Ocho on ESPN2, locking in the majority of ESPN and ESPN2’s programming for Sunday, March 22. Additional programming information regarding ESPN and ESPN2’s schedule for Saturday, March 21 and ESPN’s primetime window on Sunday, March 22 is forthcoming.
