Looking at the final stats from last night, it's tough to get a feel for how the receivers performed overall since who was throwing them the football obviously plays a part in their success.

Since Tom Brady was near perfect last night (7-of-8 for 65 yards and a touchdown), obviously that affects the completion percentages when you factor in the 50% passing performance put in by Ryan Mallett, as well as the 33% percentage that Tim Tebow had.

Here's a breakdown of how each group fared with each quarterback:

TOM BRADY: 7-of-8 (88%) 65 yards, 1 touchdown

Kenbrell Thompkins: 4 targets, 4 completions, 23 yards, 2 first downs
Danny Amendola: 1 target, 1 completion, 6 yards
Aaron Dobson: 1 target, 1 completion, 23 yards, 1 first down
Shane Vereen: 1 target, 1 completion, 13 yards, 1 first down, 1 touchdown
Stevan Ridley: 1 target, 0 completions

RYAN MALLETT: 9-of-18 (50%)  97 Yards

Daniel Fells: 3 targets, 3 completions, 27 yards, 2 first downs
Julian Edelman: 5 targets, 3 completions, 31 yards, 2 first downs
Aaron Dobson: 4 targets, 1 completion, 12 yards, 1 first down
Shane Vereen: 3 targets, 1 completion, 5 yards
Zach Sudfeld: 1 target, 1 completion, 22 yards, 1 first down
Josh Boyce: 1 target, 0 completions
