A photo of Tom Brady and Nick Foles embracing after Super Bowl LII doesn’t exist because, well, Brady didn’t let it.
Seconds after the Patriots quarterback’s hail mary fell past the arms of any receiver and onto the turf in U.S. Bank Stadium, Brady jogged to the locker room as Bill Belichick and Doug Pederson congratulated each other at midfield.
Many were quick to call Brady out on the apparent lack of sportsmanship, some of which noticed photos of Brady congratulating the opposing quarterback following Super Bowl wins exist, why those during losses, don’t.
Tom Brady didn't congratulate Nick Foles. Poor sportsmanship

Brady couldn't even shake Foles' hand? Really?

Tom Brady didn't congratulate Nick Foles and that's all you need to know about Tom Brady.

The last four Super Bowl losing QBs somehow managed to congratulate the winning QB after the game.
But not Tom Brady. This photo doesn't exist for any of his 3 Super Bowl losses.
Dude is so classless. It annoys me that he gets a pass for this pic.twitter.com/XmcoRJwZBk
