Super Bowl 48: Patriots QB Tom Brady won't watch Broncos vs Seahawks

Last year's Super Bowl 47, featuring the Baltimore Ravens defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in a last second nail biter, was witnessed by 108.4 million people, making it the third most watched program in U.S. television history behind the previous two Super Bowl match-ups.

It is expected that Super Bowl 48, featuring the Denver Broncos led by Peyton Manning taking on the Seattle Seahawks led by Richard Sherman, will top last year's mark and might actually break the record.

But, even if it does, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won't be one of those viewers.

From a recent appearance on WEEI:

"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully. Those games are hard to watch," Brady said. "I don't see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game or watch it. Our season is over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching a game. That's pretty much how I feel."

You bitter?

Brady played uncharacteristically bad in the Patriots' loss to the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, missing several throws en route to a 16-26 defeat to end New England's season early. Instead of watching to see if the quarterback who outplayed him in that game, Manning, goes on to win the big one for the second time in his career, Brady will be doing anything else.

He is married to Gisele Bundchen.
