The New England Patriots won the AFC Championship Game in stunning fashion on Sunday night, emerging with a 37-31 overtime victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. After the game, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tom Brady sought out opposing quarterback Patrick Mahomes to congratulate him on the season. One team's fan base isn't buying Brady's "good guy" act, though.

Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles are having trouble understanding why Brady sought out Mahomes, but failed to shake hands with Nick Foles after the Patriots lost in the Super Bowl a year ago.

Brady and Foles eventually met on the field in a preseason game ahead of this season. But that doesn't appear to have been enough for Eagles fans.

Many are suggesting that Brady is only respectful of his opponent when he wins. Check it out:

Regardless, the Patriots, yet again, are off to the Super Bowl. They'll take on the Los Angeles Rams - the same franchise they beat back in 2001 to start their dynasty.

The Patriots, since 2001, have now been to nine Super Bowl contests. They're 5-3 in those games - winning it all in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014 and 2016. They'll be looking to add their sixth title.

This year's Super Bowl will take place on February 3.
