Tom Brady, having just tied Bernie Kosar for the most pass attempts without an interception couldn’t break the record with a touchdown, unfortunately. The ball was a bit low to Rob Gronkowski, who couldn’t come up with it. But the next attempt worked much better, with the rookie tight end picking up his second multi-TD game of the season.
It’s never prudent to crown a team with 23 minutes left to go in the game, but it’s hard to imagine the kind of meltdown that would sink this team right now. While Bill Belichick isn’t a big fan of resting his team in the last week of the season, it’s looking like he’ll have the option with a completely meaningless game against Miami.
