Nice. Here's my submission, photo taken a year ago.

(One of these days, I'll download Tapatalk so I can use photos in my device storage...hopefully this works for now.)

West End Bridge, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Welp, quicker than I thought. Yup, that's the one.

There is only a couple of cities in the US I know that have reversible roads on bridges, and one is Pittsburgh, so it wouldn’t have been hard. There is also one in Cincinnati, And a couple in DC, as one has a temporary setup for construction. And of course there is the bay bridge as well.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

Jacksonville has been one of those, but I forget which one was the reversible bridge here.

EDIT: It was the old Acosta Bridge Downtown, but it was replaced in the late-80s/early-90s and does not have one anymore.  :(

The Tobin Bridge looks awfully like that of the Mathews Bridge here. Speaking of which, I need to post some more bridge photos here.

Based on this signal setup I'm going to guess this is somewhere in the midwest, and due to the fact it's a drawbridge, somewhere on the great lakes coast.

My guess is:

Clifton Suspension Bridge, Great Britain.

The driving on the left made it a lot easier to guess.

Correct as to both points. It's pretty distinctive regardless of the driving on the left, though. The speed limit signs would have helped clarify it's not in the USA, certainly.
