No. 9: St. Louis (Los Angeles) Rams
This picture was taken BEFORE Brady and the Patriots upset the heavily–favored Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. So, yeah, it's intense. Whether anti–Brady sentiment continues in Los Angeles remains to be seen.

No. 8: Denver Broncos
Broncos fans despise Tom Brady. Why? We're not entirely sure. Brady has a losing record against Denver, including a 1–3 mark in the postseason. But the hate is visceral. Maybe because the Pats refused to bow down to Tim Tebow.

No. 7: New York Giants
Why do Giants fans dislike Tom Brady so much? It's hard to say, considering New York is 2–0 in Super Bowls against Brady. But talk to almost any Giants fan about Brady, and you'll quickly sense the hatred.

No. 6: Baltimore Ravens
Ravens fans dislike Tom Brady, but no one hates the Patriots more than linebacker Terrell Suggs, who called the Pats "the most arrogant pricks in the world." He has also said he doesn't like Brady's "smug attitude" or his hair.

No. 5: Oakland Raiders
The Raiders haven't been competitive for most of Brady's career, but their fans are still irate about the "tuck rule" decision that allowed New England to beat Oakland in the playoffs in January 2002.

No. 4: Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins have actually beaten Tom Brady nine times in the regular season, more than any other team. Not bad! But 'Fins fans still hate Brady for dominating the AFC East year after year.

Brady has dominated the Bills more than any other team. Brady's career record against New England's AFC East rival is a staggering 25-3.

No. 2: Indianapolis Colts
Colts fans really don't like Tom Brady. First, there was the rivalry with Peyton Manning. Now Brady is dominating Andrew Luck. And since 2010, New England is 7–0 against Indianapolis. Also, remember Deflategate?

No. 1: New York Jets
Does this need explaining? Jets fans treat Tom Brady like he told them Bruce Springsteen was never returning to MetLife Stadium.
