From December 1-January 15, Patriots QB Tom Brady's No. 12 jersey "was the second-best-selling replica jersey" on NFLShop.com, behind Falcons QB Michael Vick, according to Greg Gatlin of the BOSTON HERALD. During the same period, the Patriots overall "rose to second place in terms of merchandise popularity," behind only the Packers, while the Panthers ranked seventh.

By comparison, overnight sales totaled 7,500 items" for the Raiders after their AFC Championship victory last year. Season-to-date, the Patriots rank ninth in terms of merchandise sales on NFLShop.com, while Brady "has moved up to 11th overall" (BOSTON HERALD, 1/21).
