Tom Brady completed 19-of-26 passes for two touchdowns with no interceptions and rushed five times for 13 yards Sunday in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Steelers.
It wasn’t his most prolific work but Brady was undoubtedly solid in Sunday’s win. Brady’s first touchdown of the afternoon came on a simple screen pass to James White, who slalomed through a sea of defenders for a 19-yard score. His second score came midway through the third quarter on a 36-yard deep bomb to Rob Gronkowski. Brady recognized the mismatch and easily hit Gronkowski in stride just as he beat his man in coverage. New England leaned heavily on the run, which limited Brady’s chances in the second half. Touchdown Tom will be a top-five quarterback option against Buffalo in Week 8. Oct 23 - 8:25 PM

Tom Brady has thrown 24 touchdowns against just three interceptions in 10 career games against the Steelers.

He has 17 scores and zero interceptions in his last five starts against Pittsburgh. The Steelers have been pretty good against quarterbacks this season, but their scheme seems to fit Brady's eye very well. He is a top-two option this week.

Tom Brady completed 29-of-35 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Week 6 win over the Bengals.

It was not a pretty first half for Brady, who was forced to hold the ball longer than he wanted and looked hesitant to pull the trigger. That changed on a strong touchdown drive to end the first half, and Brady found his comfort zone by targeting Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett a combined 11 times after the break. Brady hit Gronk for one of his touchdowns, and he found James White for his other two scores. Brady now has 782 yards and six touchdowns in two starts. He will look to keep that going in Pittsburgh next week.
Oct 16 - 4:33 PM

Tom Brady completed 28-of-40 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns in New England's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Coming off his four-game suspension, Brady was surgical from the opening whistle, entering halftime 18-of-25 for 271 yards and two scores. The 400-yard day was just the eighth of his career, and came even as he donned a ballcap for the final six minutes of the game. Brady was spreading the ball around, establishing connections with Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan in addition to his old standbys. Supposedly lacking chemistry with Bennett, Brady found him for three scores. Although he's now 39, Brady hasn't missed a beat. He'll be a top-five option against the Bengals in Week 6.
Oct 9 - 3:52 PM

Tom Brady's four-game suspension has ended.

Brady is eligible to rejoin the team on Monday and will be under center against the Browns on Sunday. Cleveland has given up at least two passing touchdowns to every quarterback they have faced this season. Brady needs to be in every lineup. New England will also get DE Rob Ninkovich back this week.
Oct 3 - 9:14 AM

Suspended QB Tom Brady completed 16-of-26 passes for 166 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Patriots' preseason finale.

He took a sack and scrambled twice for nine yards. Brady surprisingly got the entire first half -- 39 snaps, in all -- in what will be his final tuneup before returning from suspension in Week 5. Jimmy Garoppolo was held out tonight, and rookie Jacoby Brissett handled the final two quarters. For those considering selecting Brady in season-long leagues, Derek Carr and Dak Prescott are our favorite late-round quarterbacks to pair him with in drafts.
Sep 1 - 8:56 PM

Tom Brady is starting the Patriots' preseason finale on Thursday.

Brady hasn't gotten much work this summer — he's attempted only nine preseason passes — but this seems like an unnecessary risk. He shouldn't play more than a few series before giving way to Jacoby Brissett. It will be the last time we see Brady before Week 5.
Sep 1 - 1:38 PM

Tom Brady completed 3-of-9 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown Friday night against the Panthers.

Jimmy Garoppolo got the start, but Brady came on after three possessions for his first work of the preseason. Brady started strong, dropping a dime over Chris Hogan's shoulder for a 33-yard score in the second quarter, but he struggled to get anything going before handing the reins back to Garoppolo late in the first half. Unlikely to see any snaps in the final preseason game, the next time we see Brady should be Week 5 against the Browns.

Tom Brady said he could have played through the cut on his thumb.

"I wanted to go and Coach said it’s probably best, for what I was going to do, to just take it easy," Brady said. A picture taken during the press conference appeared to show the equivalent of a nick on Brady's right thumb. The future Hall of Famer returned to practice Tuesday.
Aug 23 - 12:39 PM

Tom Brady (lacerated thumb) returned to practice Tuesday.

Brady missed the second preseason game after slicing open his right thumb with a pair of scissors before the game, but he missed practice the last two days for a non-injury related reason. When asked about the absence, coach Bill Belichick said, "I don't comment on personal situations." Either way, Brady is back now, and he should be fully healthy well before Week 5.

Tom Brady's (lacerated thumb) agent says his client will be "okay in time."

The vague, somewhat ominous pronouncement suggests Brady is dealing with a fairly nasty cut, though there's zero reason to believe he won't be ready well ahead of his Week 5 reinstatement. Updates could be hard to come by since Brady is on suspension, but there's ultimately little reason to fret.
Aug 18 - 9:25 PM

Tom Brady was scratched from Thursday's game after "slicing" his throwing thumb with a pair scissors.

Per CSN New England, Brady was "trying to pry something from the bottom of his cleat." It's unclear if Brady required stitches. While it sounds minor, a cut on a quarterback's throwing thumb could be a multi-week injury depending on the severity. This being the Pats, and with Brady suspended for Weeks 1-4, we may never learn the true extent of the issue. ESPN Boston has reported Brady will be "okay in time."
Aug 18 - 8:23 PM

Updating an earlier item, Tom Brady is now expected to sit out Thursday's preseason game.

Brady would have only played a series or two, anyways. Jimmy Garoppolo will be behind the wheel for extended action against the Bears.
Aug 18 - 7:41 PM

Tom Brady will appear in the Patriots' second preseason game.

The suspended quarterback will play a series or two after sitting out the exhibition opener. The Pats are focused on getting Jimmy Garoppolo ready.
Aug 18 - 2:55 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Tom Brady "will take little to no snaps" in the second preseason game.

Brady also sat out the preseason opener. Rapoport added the Patriots are primarily concerned with getting Jimmy Garoppolo ready for Week 1, which suggests Garoppolo will play plenty of snaps. Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman are expected to sit out Thursday night.
