Not a Banner Night For Patriots QB Tom BradyGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady took the field during Thursday night’s game against the Packers to the delight of fans who were on hand to see him play, but it didn’t quite go the way he probably hoped.

Brady and the offense struggled in the two series that he was out there, with the veteran completing just 1-of-4 of his passes on a night that saw him without his top targets in Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Brandon LaFell.

With those players sidelined, Josh Boyce got most of the attention and the two couldn’t connect, with Brady overthrowing him on his first pass attempt and then Boyce unable to come down and hold on to another.  The Patriots didn’t spend much time on the field as Green Bay dominated in time of possession, and the Super Bowl MVP quarterback was never able to get into a rhythm.

The one completion Brady did have was to Brandon Gibson to start the team’s second drive, but after a couple of Jonas Gray runs Brady threw incomplete to Michael Hoomanawanui, which saw his night come to an end and allowed Jimmy Garoppolo to come in and get some work in.
