Gronk and Bennett’s combined numbers a week ago were 11 catches for 176 yards and three TDs. On Sunday, they had 12 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown.
Brady followed up his big game in Cleveland with another gem. He completed 29 of 35 for 376 yards and three touchdowns with Gronk having a career day.
This will be the first home game for Tom Brady since his suspension ended a week ago. Gillette will be loud and rocking, and NE should keep it that way.
The Patriots passing game transformed in the blink of an eye once Brady stepped back on the field. They finally resemble the unit we waited to see.
The offensive line isn’t playing well allowing 17 sacks and is averaging only 3.4 yards per carry. With Jeremy Hill and Giovanni Bernard, that is too low.
Another week and another marquee NFL player is sidelined with a serious injury. Ben Roethlisberger was off to a fantastic start of the 2015 NFL season but will reportedly be out 4-6 weeks after suffering a medial collateral ligament sprain and bone bruise from a low hit in the pocket by St. Louis safety Mark Barron in the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 12-6 victory over the Rams on Sunday. Big Ben had completed over 75% of his passes this season and was leading the league with 10.2 pass attempts; in the first two games of the year Roethlisberger threw for a whopping 720 yards, and was picking the St. Louis defense apart, completing 20 of 24 passes before the unfortunate hit.
