Tom Brady Disappointed By Gillette Stadium Crowd

I can’t say I blame those fans that opted to leave early last Sunday during the New England Patriots’ convincing victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Tom Brady however wasn’t thrilled that Gillette Stadium was nearly half empty for much of the 4th quarter.

“It’s a tough place to play. The Meadowlands is always a tough place to play,” Brady replied. "The road environment is very different than our friendly home crowd, who, when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points in the early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about. But I don’t think the Jets fans leave early.

Home field advantage isn’t quite what it used to be in today’s posh and spacious stadiums, but it’s certainly hard to get an edge from the home-field faithful when the seats are empty. That’s the price you pay though for taking a 24-0 lead into halftime.

The Patriots return to Gillette Stadium on September 26th to take on the Buffalo Bills.
