The Super Bowl champion Patriots will host the Chiefs in the 2017 season's opening game on Thursday Sept. 7.
It's a matchup of two great teams, but lacks the punch of last year's Super Bowl rematch between the Broncos and Panthers. Speaking of Super Bowl rematches, the Patriots will host the Falcons in Week 7. That game will be played on Sunday Night Football. It's 141 days until we kick off the season with Alex Smith in primetime. Apr 20 - 8:02 PM

Patriots owner Bob Kraft said Monday at the NFL Owners Meetings that Tom Brady believes he can continue playing into his mid to late 40s.

Brady turns 40 this August. "As recently as two to three days ago, (Brady) assured me he’s willing to play six, seven more years," were Kraft's exact words. Kraft added that he's hopeful Bill Belichick will "coach into his 80s." A lot of this feels hyperbolic and will likely prove to be, but Brady's current physical fitness and always-evolving game make the notion of him playing until age 45 seem conceivable as things stand today.
Mar 27 - 4:40 PM

The Boston Herald reports the Patriots and Tom Brady have "mutual interest" in a contract extension, but that nothing is imminent.

Going on 40, Brady is already signed through 2019. His most recent extension came just last year, though it includes cap hits of $22 million in both 2018 and 2019. That, of course, is modest for a player of Brady's stature and effectiveness. Considering Brady's age and team-friendly contract, there certainly won't be a sense of urgency from the Pats to extend him. Perhaps Brady is angling for a deserved raise.

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, Super Bowl LI MVP Tom Brady said he has zero plans to retire.

"If it was up to my wife she'd have me retire today, she told me that last night," Brady said. "I said too bad babe." Brady turns 40 in August, but remained one of the 2-3 best players in the entire league in 2016. There have been remarkably few signs of drop off. Brady doesn't have the arm strength he once did, but it scarcely matters in a relentless, short-area attack he commands like Ludwig van Beethoven.
Feb 6 - 2:23 PM

Tom Brady earned game MVP in Super Bowl 51, completing 43-of-62 passes for 466 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception as the Patriots completed the greatest comeback win in postseason history by erasing a 25-point deficit to defeat the Falcons 34-28 in overtime.

It is Brady's fourth career Super Bowl MVP honor. His completions and passing yards were both Super Bowl records. Brady overcame five sacks and three-plus quarters of dominant defensive play by the Falcons to pour 31 unanswered points on Dan Quinn's tired defense, which played a whopping 93 snaps on Sunday. Brady exposed the Falcons with a Super Bowl record 14 completions to James White, who scored three touchdowns including the game winner in overtime. Turning 40 in August, Brady has shown no signs of slowdown. He should remain a top-three NFL quarterback in 2017 with a strengthened supporting cast as Rob Gronkowski (back surgery) returns to health.
Feb 5 - 10:38 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Patriots expect Tom Brady to play 3-5 more years.

In other words, the Patriots don't view Jimmy Garoppolo as his eventual successor. Garoppolo is headed for free agency next year and the Patriots are expected to entertain any and all trade offers for him this offseason. Cleveland, Chicago and San Francisco are just a few of the many teams expected to pursue Garoppolo. As for Brady, the 39-year-old has had another remarkable season, finishing second to Matt Ryan in MVP voting while leading New England to its record-breaking ninth Super Bowl appearance. Father Time will eventually catch up to him, but this year proved that Brady still has plenty left in the tank. Rapoport expects the Patriots to extend Brady's contract next offseason.
Feb 5 - 11:55 AM

Tom Brady completed 32-of-42 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns and rushed four times for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Coming off a sluggish game against Houston in the Divisional Round, Brady was near-perfect Sunday in a convincing win over the Steelers. New England came out gunning, peppering the Pittsburgh secondary with short passes. That opened up things downfield for Chris Hogan, who led the way with a career-high 180 yards on nine catches. Brady delivered a spot-on flea-flicker to Hogan, who took it 34 yards for the score. He also dished out a 10-yard touchdown strike to Julian Edelman late in the third quarter, which essentially put the game out of reach. Brady is throwing the deep ball as well as he ever has and simply doesn’t make mistakes when he has time to throw. A win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI would cement Brady’s status as the greatest quarterback of all-time.
Jan 22 - 9:51 PM

Tom Brady has thrown 19 touchdowns and zero interceptions in six games against the Steelers with Mike Tomlin as the head coach.

Brady has also averaged 314.8 yards per game and owns a passer rating of 127.5 in those contests. This Steelers defense is better than some of the units Brady has faced in the past, but that kind of success is at least worth noting. With both Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan likely to be higher-owned, Brady could be a somewhat sneaky option in DFS this weekend.
Jan 21 - 10:37 AM

Tom Brady completed 18-of-38 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

He took only two sacks, but got hit eight times by a talented Texans pass rush. The Patriots played up-tempo offense and attacked the Texans’ linebackers, safeties, and slot CB Kareem Jackson in pass coverage. Brady hit Dion Lewis and James White for scores, both on route concepts targeting Texans ILB Bernadrick McKinney. Between the twenties, Julian Edelman ate Jackson for lunch. Both of Brady's interceptions came off deflected passes in a fairly ugly performance despite the lopsided score (34-16). If the Patriots are going back to the Super Bowl this season, their AFC Championship Game performance will need to be quite a bit better.
Jan 15 - 12:22 AM

Tom Brady completed 25-of-33 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

He rushed once for six yards and was replaced by Jimmy Garoppolo at the end of the game. The Patriots pasted the Fins through the air, with the highlight being a 77-yard catch-and-run score to Julian Edelman. Brady's other TDs went to Michael Floyd and Martellus Bennett in the red zone. Brady's regular season ends with an exceptional 28:2 TD-to-INT ratio. The Patriots will rest during a first-round playoff bye and return for the Divisional Round.
Jan 1 - 3:53 PM

Tom Brady (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Brady practiced on a limited basis the last two days but his status isn't in doubt. The Patriots can lock up the No. 1 seed with a win against Miami.

Tom Brady (thigh) returned to practice Thursday.

He was "limited." There was never any concern about his status for the season finale. A win on Sunday will lock up the No. 1 seed for the Patriots.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 11:21:00 AM

Tom Brady (thigh) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Brady was listed questionable with the same injury last week before ultimately playing against the Jets. Expect the same this week against the Dolphins. New England is trying to lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC wth a win.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 01:21:00 PM

Bill Belichick implied he will not rest any starters Week 17 against the Dolphins.

"I don't understand that question," Belichick said. "I don't know how many starters we have." The Patriots could lose the No. 1 seed with a loss and Raiders win, and they have already locked up a bye. There is really not much reason for New England to sit anyone in one of two games this weekend in which both teams actually have something to play for, especially after what happened at the end of last season. Tom Brady and company should play as normal on Sunday.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 11:03:00 AM

Tom Brady completed 17-of-27 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns Saturday in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

The Jets probably would have been better off staying in East Rutherford. Brady did whatever he wanted against them. He had forever to throw, particularly on a second-quarter touchdown pass to James White where nobody was in sight. He came out in the third quarter with New England ahead by 34. The likely NFL MVP has now thrown 25 touchdown passes with only two interceptions over 11 games this season. If Oakland loses against Indianapolis later today, New England will clinch homefield advantage throughout the postseason. If that happens, we wouldn’t expect to see much Brady next week against Miami.
