INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Brady’s 4th Quarter Numbers are StaggeringThomas J. Russo - USA TODAY Sports

Looking at the last three games, the final quarter of play has been an area where Tom Brady has stepped up quite a bit recently compared to the first five weeks and he was already pretty good to begin with.

Brady overall on the season has completed 225-of-328 passing (69%) for 2709 yards along with 22 touchdowns and just two interceptions.  Down in scoring territory, he’s 35-of-58 (60%) for 285 yards with 18 touchdowns and one interception.

But looking at the quarterback’s fourth quarter totals, it’s impressive to see just how good he’s been down the stretch, especially in the red zone.

Here’s a quick look at the numbers:

4th Quarter – First five games:

Tom Brady: 27-of-40 (68%) 331 yards 3 TDs

Red Zone: 5-of-7 (71%) 27 yards 2 TDs

4th Quarter – Last three Games:

Tom Brady: 25-of-32 (78%) 299 yards 5 TDs

Red Zone: 7-of-8 (88%) 74 yards 5 TDs

Those numbers are staggering, with Brady having missed just seven fourth quarter passes over the last three weeks, and completing nearly 90% down in scoring territory.

He’s a perfect 7-of-7 to Julian Edelman over that three week span, including 3-of-3 with two touchdowns in the red zone.  He’s also 6-of-6 to Rob Gronkowski, which includes 2-of-2 and a touchdown down in scoring territory.

We already knew he was a clutch player at the end of the game.  These numbers are just a further reminder of that and it’s obviously a big reason why this team is 8-0 heading into Sunday’s match-up against the Giants.
