Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones not only featured [Spoiler Alert!] on epic one-sided battle, a fiery last-second rescue, and the seeds of (yet another) incestuous relationship—it also featured one hell of a laser from the Night King, the undead villain who hucked an icy spear into the chest of Viseron, Daenery’s dragon named for her gilded brother Viserys.
Not only was this Tom Brady impersonation painful for the dragon, Dany, and everyone pulling for the living on GoT, it was—much like any Brady success—painful for New York Jets fans as well, who had to deal with everyone making the same joke about their dire quarterback situation.

The only way to destroy the Night King is for the Jets to sign him. #GameOfThrones

You gotta think after that performance this Sunday, many teams (including Jacksonville, Jets, Denver) are on the phone with the Night King.

I’m pretty sure the Night King would be a major upgrade at QB for many teams (cough, Browns, cough, Jets, cough Jaguars…)
