Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs JAX (33 / 42 / 358 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)

The Patriots scored on every single offensive drive they had, which should probably tell you all you need to know about Tom Brady's performance. At 38, Brady has been dominant this season, and Jacksonville was no exception. Brady attempted more deep balls in this game than prior games, and some connected, some didn't. Seam routes to Rob Gronkowski worked on a couple occasions, as did a deep pass to Aaron Dobson that drew pass interference. Brady's stat line could have been much gaudier, but three New England touchdowns were cashed in at the 1 yard line by the running game, which won't always happen. Though the game was a bit more balanced than last week, the Patriots still went pass heavy when the game was in-hand, and ran consistently only when the score differential was 30 or 40 points. Brady's first touchdown was a play action set up that saw Danny Amendola wide open in the end zone, the definition of pitch and catch. Brady's second touchdown was next to brand new receiver Keshawn Martin. On the play, Brady was forced to awkwardly scramble to his left. Martin eyed his quarterback, saw he was in trouble, and smartly broke left, allowing Brady to throw it to Martin on the score. Credit goes to both quarterback and receiver on the play. Brady completed passes to 9 different receivers, and continues to excel as the season progresses.

2015 Week 2 vs BUF (38 / 59 / 466 / 3 / 0 pass, 3 / -4 / 0 rush)

For a second week in a row, Tom Brady showed why he's one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, absolutely shredding the Bills defense to the tune of multiple touchdowns and 466 yards. Brady operated the short and intermediate passing game masterfully, although huge credit should go out to his offensive line. Considering Brady attempted a whopping 59 passes, only 2 sacks allowed was a testament to the young group battling against a high-paid Bills defensive line. Game script obviously favored passing, as the 59 pass attempts were coupled with 15 rush attempts. Brady's first touchdown came to Julian Edelman on a play that was mostly Brady, as he scrambled left and threw to his receiver on the run. The 2 yard touchdown to Rob Gronkowski saw a tight run formation flex Gronk and Scott Chandler out wide. For some reason, the Bills double teamed Chandler and stuck a small cornerback on Gronk. Not the best decision, but it worked out for the Patriots. Brady's third touchdown was a short toss to Edelman that saw Edelman rack up YAC and dive into the endzone for a score. Brady did have several deeper completions, whether depth of target was short or far, including chunk plays to Gronk, Edelman, Dion Lewis, and more. Aaron Dobson even got involved in the intermediate game. Brady's only blemish was a fumble on a strip by a defensive lineman, but all in all, another great day at the office.

2015 Week 1 vs PIT (25 / 32 / 288 / 4 / 0 pass, 3 / 1 / 0 rush)

Anger. Revenge. Drama. Whatever fueled Tom Brady's fire, he was on his game against the Steelers, and started out with a bang. The generation's best quarterback eviscerated the opposing defense with quicker throws and targets primarily to his favorite targets, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski. His offensive line's performance should also be noted, as it held up remarkably well given that it contained 3 rookies. Running back Dion Lewis also provided a spark with pass catching and running chops. Brady's only real blemish was an overthrow of a wide-open Danny Amendola on a deep pass, but other than that, his stat line, which included 19 straight completions, was an indicator of how well Brady played. Brady's first touchdown was a 16 yard toss to Rob Gronkowski that somehow had Gronk uncovered at the snap. You do that, you're gonna have a bad time. Gronk eluded a tackler, while another made a smart 'business decision' to not bother tackling Gronk properly and let him score. Brady's second touchdown was a play action touchdown to Gronkowski from 6 yards out in a tight end heavy set. Brady lobbed the ball over defenders down the middle, and the big tight end grabbed it. The third touchdown of the day was a 1 yard flat pass to Scott Chandler that barely saw Chandler score. Brady's last touchdown was of course to Gronk again on a fade from the 1, because the Steelers decided a linebacker could match up with Gronk, which is obviously wrong. All in all, a great day for Tommy Boy.
