Tom Brady completed 17-of-21 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.
After starting slowly, Brady engineered two 80-plus yard touchdown drives and took the offense 49 yards for a field goal in the two-minute drill. Unless he shockingly plays next week, Brady finishes the preseason 25-of-31 for 285 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Brady is being overvalued in the sixth round, but a healthy Rob Gronkowski makes him as good a bounce-back candidate as any. Aug 22 - 9:40 PM

Tom Brady was 8-for-10 for 81 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Eagles in Friday night's preseason game.

The pick was not Brady's fault. Newly-signed TE Steve Maneri appeared to run the wrong route, and Brady's pass fell right into the arms of a waiting Cary Williams, who took it to the house. It was the only blemish on an otherwise impressive night. Brady disappointed last season, but a healthy Rob Gronkowski makes him as good a bounce-back candidate as any.

Tom Brady will sit out Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins.

The Patriots saw enough from Brady during this week's joint practices with the Skins, as he completed 60-of-80 passes (75.0 percent) in team drills while displaying an "obvious rhythm." Ryan Mallett, who is in the midst of his best NFL camp, will start.

Private quarterback coach Tom House is working to correct accuracy and deep-ball issues with Tom Brady.

Operating as a 36-year-old last season, Brady posted his lowest yardage and touchdown totals since 2006, and his lowest completion percentage since 2003. "As he's getting a little older you lose a little strength, you lose a little flexibility," House said. "So we ran him through the computer, compared him to the models we have created for movement efficiency, and there were really, really small things that were causing his issues." With a more seasoned supporting cast and these mechanical changes, we're expecting Brady to bounce back a bit and produce a low-end QB1 season. He was fantasy's No. 14 quarterback in 2013.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft believes Tom Brady has a "lot of play left."

"The way he takes care of his body, the way he eats, the way he plays, the way he trains, people look up to him," Kraft said. Kraft went on to say he hopes second-round QB Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t get a chance to play for a "long, long time." Brady looked human in 2013, but the Pats' young skill players were at least partly to blame. Brady turns 37 in August.

36-year-old Tom Brady said he feels physically better now than when he was 25.

"I know that's hard for people to believe, but I do. I work at it," he said. Brady's 2013 numbers tailed off dramatically as he ranked 21st in completion rate (60.5), 22nd in YPA (6.92), 11th in touchdown passes (25), and 11th in QBR (61.1). Some of that can be blamed on inexperienced receivers, Rob Gronkowski's injuries and the Patriots' increasing lean toward the power run game. But Brady has to take some of the blame as his accuracy and arm strength waned. He's a borderline fantasy QB1 that will sink even further if Gronk's ACL isn't ready for Week 1.

Tom Brady completed 24-of-38 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for a second score as New England fell to Denver 26-16 in Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Brady blew a huge first-quarter vertical strike opportunity on a bad overthrow for Julian Edelman, who got wide open on a slot route that developed deep down the left sideline. The Pats tried to attack Denver's defense with a pass-happy approach, for which OC Josh McDaniels and Bill Belichick may receive hindsight criticism this week after all of LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley's recent success. This loss was squarely on Tom Terrific's shoulders, as Brady blew yet another shot-play chance at the end of the first half, missing an open Austin Collie so badly the ball fell incomplete out of bounds. Brady's lone passing touchdown of the 2013-2014 playoffs wound up going to Edelman to "narrow" the deficit to 23-10 in the fourth quarter. Although Brady's depleted supporting cast deserves blame, his accuracy beyond ten yards has declined noticeably and significantly the past two seasons. Now going on age 37, Brady will be a lower-end QB1 in 2014 fantasy leagues.

Tom Brady (illness) has been removed from the Patriots injury report.

Brady returned to a full practice Thursday after being held out Wednesday with an illness and a right shoulder issue. The fact that the Patriots removed him from the injury report confirms he'll be all systems go for the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 16 - 4:12 PM

Tom Brady (illness) returned to the Patriots facility Thursday and is expected to practice.

Brady is just dealing with a little cold and will be fine for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Broncos. The shoulder "injury" is a non-issue. Brady has the most wins in playoff history with 18. The Patriots have been to eight AFC Championship games in Brady's 12 years.
Jan 16 - 8:56 AM

Tom Brady was officially listed as "DNP" on the Wednesday injury report with illness and a right shoulder issue.

Eyebrows will rise at the "shoulder" designation, but it's nothing new for Brady. Missed practice time isn't ideal ahead of the Patriots' biggest game of the season, but if anyone can manage it, it's Brady. This is New England's eighth appearance of the Brady era in the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 15 - 4:11 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Tom Brady missed Wednesday's practice with an illness.

A source tells Rapoport that Brady is "just sick." In other words, it's nothing to worry about. It's unusual for Brady to miss practice time ahead of such an important game, but it shouldn't be a factor on Sunday. There's zero reason to worry about Brady's status for the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 15 - 1:14 PM

Tom Brady (undisclosed) wasn't present at the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday.

Brady's presser, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, has been pushed back to Friday. He's been on the injury report the past few weeks with a shoulder issue but had been practicing in full. We doubt it's anything serious. The Patriots are likely just playing games. There's also a chance Brady shows up for the latter part of practice that is closed to the media. We'll update his status later. There's no need to worry about Brady's availability for Sunday.
Jan 15 - 11:39 AM

Tom Brady completed 13-of-25 passes for 198 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in New England's Divisional Round win over the Colts.

The Patriots entered the game wanting to ram the ball down the Colts' throat, and they obliged by springing major defensive leaks in the second half. The sub-200 yard effort was just Brady's second in a playoff game since 2004. Brady is going to be dropping back far more often if New England draws Denver in next week's AFC Championship Game. Peyton Manning would be all but certain to lure Brady into a shootout.
Jan 11 - 11:43 PM

Tom Brady completed 14-of-24 passes for 122 yards, one touchdown and an interception in New England's 34-20, Week 17 win over the Bills.

There wasn't much throwing to be done for a Patriots team that more-or-less controlled a soggy slugfest from the opening whistle. The game was essentially played on a slip-and-slide, while Brady lost starting "X" receiver Aaron Dobson to an aggravation of his foot injury in the first quarter. Brady's "interception" was more accurately a Shane Vereen drop. Brady closes the book on the regular season the owner of 4,343 yards and a 25:11 TD:INT ratio. The yards are his fewest since 2010, while the scores are his fewest since 2006 (excluding his injury-ruined 2008). Brady came on very strong in the second half, however. He's going to be a handful in the playoffs.

Tom Brady (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 17.

Brady's "injury" wasn't a factor in Week 16. He'll be his usual self against the Bills.
