New, comments

The Patriots and ESPN, what could be better?

The New England Patriots have been nominated for six ESPYS and you can vote for all of them here. I’m not sure whether Patriots fans would feel gratified watching ESPN hand off awards to the Patriots and QB Tom Brady after DeflateGate, or if they’d rather just stay away, but the option is yours.

The Patriots have been nominated for:

Best Championship Performance - Tom Brady (Vote Here)

Brady is up against the NBA’s Kevin Durant, CFB’s DeShaun Watson, and WCWS’s Shay Knighten.

Best NFL Player - Tom Brady (Vote Here)

Brady is up against Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, Raiders EDGE Khalil Mack, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

Best Record-Breaking Performance - Bill Belichick (Vote Here)

Belichick set the record for most Super Bowl wins by a coach and is facing Michael Phelps, who extended his gold medal record, Diana Taurasi, who broke the WNBA career scoring record, and Russell Westbrook, who recorded the most triple doubles in a season.

Best Game - Patriots vs Falcons (Vote Here)

The Patriots are against game seven of the World Series between the Cubs and Indians and the Australian Open Final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Best Team - New England Patriots (Vote Here)

The Patriots are against the Chicago Cubs, Clemson Tigers, Golden State Warriors, Pittsburgh Penguins, South Carolina Gamecocks, and U.S. Women’s Gymnastics.

Best Play - Julian Edelman’s Super Bowl Catch (Vote Here)

Edelman’s catch has the #1 seed in the bracket ESPN put together. There will be a vote each week to see which play moves on in the bracket before crowing a champion at the ESPY Awards Ceremony.
