Who else? Above all else, Patriots fans are thankful for watching the best quarterback of all-time drop back to pass every Sunday.

At age 38, Brady is drinking from a fountain of youth. He’s never been in this great of shape, maneuvering in the pocket better than he ever has and displaying unseen scrambling ability up to this point. Brady has also trained himself to go limp when he takes big hits, which substantially decreases his chances of getting injured.

Now in his 16th season in the league, there isn’t a thing Brady hasn’t seen. His preparation is impeccable, and his execution has yet to suffer as a result of his age. While Peyton Manning does Papa John’s commercials, Brady drinks half his body weight in water and goes to bed early.

While you’re watching the slate of Thanksgiving Day games today, think about these 10 items and be thankful that you are a Patriots fan.
