The mom-of-three even reminisced to Tom about having first met over ten years ago at a friendly football game in Harvard, saying that she "ran 25 yards" after he threw a ball that landed right in her hands.

Luckily, she had her friend and co-star Craig Melvin there to help her out through it as the two spoke to the football star about spending time with his family and his upcoming NFL prep.

Dylan joked about being a fan of the Patriots while seeing Tom play for Tampa Bay, saying she did "feel like a scorned lover sometimes," to the confusion of her other co-host, Al Roker, who sat there trying to piece together her explanation.

The Today star shared the interview clip on social media with the caption: "I think I played it cool. We're basically best friends now. @craigmelvinnbc was there for moral support in case I couldn’t speak. #thegoat."

The NFL star talked about his particular eating habits, football, and time with family

Fans were happy to see how excited Dylan was, with one commenting: "So jealous! You did amazing Dylan!!! Love the #12," and another even quipped: "I'm surprised none of your boys are named Tom, Brady or Pat at this point."
