    2 INTs. A third pass that could easily have been picked off. Some presumably imperfect passes to Moss (more incompletions in Moss' direction than he has in a typical month).

    Was this the annual off-target game we've come to expect from Brady?

    When pressured or when the feeling of constant pressure is present, Brady stops going through his reads and goes to his first read. As he said post-game, it was "just drop back and fire". It is as if he makes up his mind where he is going to throw before the play starts. This 'just sling it" mode will of necessity sometimes result in interceptions: the throw to Kyle Brady amidst 4 Colt defenders is an example as is the final pick in the AFC championship game. (Tom never looked at Evans in the right flat.) For this drop back and fire to succeed, receivers have to get open and make plays and Tom has to be very accurate. Picks, however, will occur.
