The overly large jacket that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wore on the sidelines during the team's win in the AFC Championship game has the internet abuzz.
Brady was captured by television cameras sitting on the bench late in the first quarter of Sunday's 36-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His jacket created quite the stir on social media, since many users compared the "inflated" jacket to "Deflategate," the controversy surrounding the Patriots allegedly deflating footballs during the 2015 AFC Championship game.

All jokes aside, Brady will be appearing in his seventh Super Bowl, the most all-time among quarterbacks. He is 4-2 in Super Bowl games.
The game, which airs on Fox, is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 5, from NRG Stadium in Houston.
