Ahead of Tom Brady’s tenth Super Bowl appearance, Family Feud host Steve Harvey took some time to poke fun at the future Hall of Famer’s former team. Harvey took advantage of the fact that the New England Patriots missed the playoffs to really dig into their fans. As a Cleveland Browns fan himself, Harvey took no prisoners as he unleashed on the Patriots nation.

“I love some of the things that they’ve changed. First of all, I love that the Patriots missed the playoffs for the first time in 13 years! Let the church say amen!” Steve Harvey said to his virtual audience.

His monologue did not solely revolve around bashing the Patriots, however, that did account for most of it. Alongside his absolute roasting of the typically outstanding team, Steve Harvey also talked about the NFL’s interesting year. He mentioned some of the adjustments the League made due to the coronavirus pandemic, but mainly just used it as a segue to more Patriots roasting.

“Another new thing that I kinda thought was pretty cool this season was the NFL added two extra teams to the playoffs this year… and the Patriots still didn’t make it!” he joked. “I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. You know the only one enjoying the Patriots not making the playoffs more than I is Tom Brady. He’s got to be, man. You know how good it must feel for Tom to be in the Super Bowl without Bill Belichick?”

Steve Harvey on the Cleveland Browns

Steve Harvey saved some of his harshness for his own team, the Cleveland Browns. While the New England Patriots missed the playoffs for the time in 13 years, the Cleveland Browns made the playoffs for the first time in almost 20 years. They also went on to clinch their first playoff victory since 1994. Steve Harvey had no problem rubbing this into the Patriots fans who had no idea how to handle the situation.

“Yes, Patriots fans, they don’t even know what to do with themselves,” Steve Harvey continued. “They ain’t never had free time in January. They been calling up all the Browns fans for advice because our season normally ends somewhere in October, but not this year, though!”

Last night, Tom Brady won his seventh Super Bowl, and this time with a brand new team. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by Brady, defeated the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 31-9.
