Brady was also #1 in NFL royalty cash as his NFL merchandise was the top seller across the league. Not bad for a soon-to-be 42-year old “dink and dunk” QB.
Current and former New England Patriots congratulate Drew Brees following passing yards record over social media.
Brady entered the game with just three healthy wide receivers and put on an absolute clinic in the first quarter throwing for 177 yards and three TDs.
Even with an injury depleted wide receiver corps, Brady still has plenty of weapons to go to. Rob Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen should be primary targets
The Patriots had a rare 4th quarter meltdown at home against the Chiefs and allowed 21 points in the fourth quarter to lose 42-27.
The Patriots at New Orleans looms to be the most analyzed game in the NFL heading into week two. It features two potent offenses led by a pair of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Drew Brees and Tom Brady. The Pats loss to the Chiefs will result in even more scrutiny, as New England strives to avoid an 0-2 start to the 2017 season.
The Patriots open up the season in Arizona on Sunday. So with the wait before the game on Sunday night, here are some interesting numbers to pore over.
The Patriots, however, weren’t at their best offensively and were rather sloppy with dropped passes across the board by multiple players.
This will mark the fourth time that the Patriots and Saints will conduct joint practices, the third time in Foxboro. 2010, 2012 were here and 2015 in WV.
A quick look at the final eight teams that rounded out the NFL’s season from the Divisional Round thru the Super Bowl shows that for the most part, teams that ran the ball well were the ones standing in the end.
New Atlanta head coach Dan Quinn spent nearly twenty years as a defensive line coach prior to becoming Seattle’s defensive coordinator for two years, when the Seahawks were the NFL’s best defense and won the Super Bowl. While it is still a work in progress, Atlanta’s defense has noticeably improved from the porous sieve that they were the last couple of years. The Falcon offensive line suffered through more than their share of injuries last year; that group being healthy has led to a much improved offense, especially running the ball
The Patriots and Saints should each play their starters a bit more this week as they gear up for the regular season. This should be a good matchup for each
Bill Belichick was ahead of the curve on the joint practice bandwagon and the Patriots will get more from those than the actual preseason game vs the Saints
