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. Jan 19 - 6:05 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 05:06:00 PM

Tom Brady completed 14-of-26 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown as the Patriots dominated Baltimore 41-7 in Week 16.

It was an easy day for Brady, who was tasked with doing very little as New England's D took it to a gimpy Joe Flacco. Both the 172 yards and 14 completions were his fewest since he posted 13 and 116, respectively, against the Dolphins in Week 8. Strangely, that performance also came in a victory. The bad news is that Brady lost yet another weapon, as Shane Vereen missed the better part of three quarters with a groin injury. His Week 17 status is unclear. Brady has 4,221 yards and 24 scores heading into the regular-season finale.

Tom Brady (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Maybe Brady is sore, but he isn't hurt. He's on the QB1 borderline for Week 16.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 04:26:00 PM

Tom Brady completed 34-of-55 passes for 364 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in New England's 24-20, Week 15 loss to the Dolphins.

Brady did all he could to overcome the absence of Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins, but found things even more complicated after losing LT Nate Solder to another concussion. Brady's worst throw was his last, where he tossed a pick to reserve CB Michael Thomas in the end zone. Brady absolutely shredded the Dolphins in the middle of the field, finding slot men Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola for a combined 23 catches and 270 yards. Going on the road to take on the Ravens, Brady has a dicey Week 16 matchup, but will remain in the QB1 conversation. He needs Solder back, however.

Tom Brady (throwing shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Brady's status isn't a concern for Week 15. Adjusting to life without Rob Gronkowski, he'll be a mid-range QB1 against the Dolphins' solid pass defense.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 04:37:00 PM

Tom Brady (right shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Brady should be fine for Week 15 against the Dolphins on the road. Without Rob Gronkowski (torn ACL, MCL), consider Brady a back-end QB1.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 07:14:00 PM

Tom Brady completed 32-of-52 passes for 418 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Patriots' 27-26, Week 14 comeback win over the Browns.

Brady and the Patriots turned things around in a big way in the second half. The offense couldn't do anything before the break, as New England didn't score its first points until there was 1:41 remaining in the third quarter. Brady tossed a bad interception to D'Qwell Jackson over the middle on a third down pass, and then lost a fumble midway through the third quarter one play after Rob Gronkowski suffered a potentially serious knee injury. The Patriots rallied the troops, and Brady turned to Shane Vereen in the passing game. The two hooked up 12 times for 153 yards. Brady's two scores went to Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola in the final 1:04 of the fourth quarter. Gronkowski's loss will be a big one for Brady, but he'll be on the back end of the QB1 radar next week in Miami.
