ESPN's Max Kellerman continues to do everything he can to downplay the success of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots this season.

Kellerman, who's been on the receiving end of a ton of hate from the Patriots and their fans this season, is getting more of it this morning.

The co-host of ESPN's First Take said this morning that "of course" Tom Brady was "lucky" to win the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night.

Kellerman pointed to the coin toss, which the Patriots won in overtime, as a reason for Brady being "lucky."

Stephen A. Smith wasn't having any of it.

“It’s nice that you’re laughing, because you’re laughing at yourself, because nobody is laughing about what you’re saying," Smith said to Kellerman.

Neither was ESPN analyst Damien Woody... "Where the hell did you get luck from?" Woody said.

Lucky or not, the Patriots are off to the Super Bowl, where they'll take on the Los Angeles Rams.

The Patriots and the Rams are set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. E.T. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3. New England is currently being listed as a 1.5-point favorite over Los Angeles.

The game will be televised on CBS.
