From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 24): Brady was near his fantasy floor against the Steelers, as the Patriots relied on more safe passing and lots of running from LeGarrette Blount. They didn't seem to feel urgency to run up the score or speed up the game as a road favorite. Against the Bills this week, the sky is the limit for Brady's scoring.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 7 vs PIT (19 / 26 / 222 / 2 / 0 pass, 5 / 13 / 0 rush)

Another day at the office for Tom Brady, who wasn't out of this world good, but played well enough to secure a win. Brady had a rougher first half in terms of pressure and receiver separation, but was still able to toss two touchdown passes during the game and continue his streak of turnover-free football. Brady's first touchdown was a short screen to James White who did most of the work, weaving in and out of defenders. His second was a deep shot to Rob Gronkowski on a classic seam route, beating his defender and a safety in coverage. Game script did call for a heavy dose of runs against the Steelers, as the Patriots actually had more runs than passes overall on the day. Brady himself also scrambled a few times, a rarity for the slow-footed star. Brady was also the victim of a couple critical third down drops by Julian Edelman and Brandon Bolden, and the Patriots also had two fumbles which limited further scoring.

2016 Week 6 vs CIN (29 / 35 / 376 / 3 / 0 pass, 2 / 2 / 0 rush)

It was a tale of two halves for Brady and the Patriots offense. The first half saw Brady under continuous harassment by the Bengals defense, and the offense scored all of 10 points. With some halftime adjustments, the offense then rattled off 25 points in the second half, with some savvy plays by Brady himself. Brady's first touchdown was an easy pitch and catch to James White, who beat a linebacker in coverage for a score. White's second touchdown catch from Brady was nearly identical, beating a defender on an out type route. Brady's touchdown to Rob Gronkowski was a thing of beauty even though it was a short score. Gronk ran a curl route in the end zone, and Brady placed the ball low and away from the defender. You couldn't have handed the ball in a better spot, and it was a perfect location with a solid hands catch by Gronk. There were no major blemishes that were Brady's fault on the day besides a narrow Edelman overthrow in the end zone, and though he's only played 2 games this season, he's in late season form already.

2016 Week 5 vs CLE (28 / 40 / 406 / 3 / 0 pass, 2 / 14 / 0 rush)

Rust? What rust? Tom Brady was absolutely masterful against the Browns, passing for 277 yards by halftime and over 400 for the entire game. His footwork was great, the offensive line held up reasonably well, he went through progressions. In fact, he came out with 6 minutes left in the game because of the lopsided game score. All 3 of Brady's touchdowns were to Martellus Bennett. The first was a walk-in play action fake, where Bennett was so wide open that he literally walked to the end zone for a short 7 yard score. The second touchdown was a nice pitch and catch in heavy traffic, with perfect ball placement and an even nicer clutch grab. The third was an out and up for 37 yards where Bennett simply beat his defender in coverage. Brady also had numerous other deep connections, a promising sign after some struggles with the deep ball over the last couple years. Several were to Chris Hogan, including a 63 yarder in which he could have scored if he didn't have to dive for the ball. Brady also connected on a couple 30+ yard gains to Gronk, who's clearly back from his hamstring injury. With a tough road ahead, Bradyís return came just in time for the AFC East favorites.
