Tag: Tom Brady matchups
Tom Brady made it personal and that proved to be a bit too much for the New York Jets to slow down the talented quarterback and keep the Patriots from crushing the Jets 37-16. The Patriots stumbled a couple times earlier this season. They dropped a game against the Bills at Buffalo and then dropped to consecutive games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants right before the played Mark Sanchez and the Jets. They needed this win, not only to improve the record, but also to prove that despite the recent past, they are still the top team in the AFC East and a force in the league to be reckon with.
The New England Patriots game relies heavily on the phenomenal passing by their quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots are currently ranked 19th in rushing yards, 9th in opposing rushing yards, they are the league worst when it comes to opposing passing yards and with a 6-3 record, they are far from being the strongest squad in the nation. Until you consider that they have recorded 326 passing yards per game this season to be the best passing team in the league. And yes, it’s all because of Tom Brady.
The Patrios successfully ended the two-game skid that had many wondering if the Pats were for real. Well, passing for 329 yards while completing 26 of his 39 passes for 3-touchdown passes and no interceptions should make it clear that at least as Brady is concerned, the Pat’s are as strong as when they dominated the league almost a decade ago. Things are looking bright for Tom Brady. Not only is his team leading it’s division, he’s also been braking records each week. Consider for a moment that this was the 40th time Tom Brady reached the 300-yard mark in a regular-season game, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer Joe Montana for eighth on the NFL’s list.
As if that was not enough, he also joined New Orleans’ Drew Brees as the only quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in their team’s first nine games. The duo Brady makes with his head coach Bill Belichick broke a tie with Miami’s Dan Marino and Don Shula as the winningest quarterback-coach duo since 1966 with 117 victories. And he managed to do this while outplaying a team he has publicly declared hi loathes: the Jets. So in short: it was one heck of Sunday for Brady and the Patriots.
It seems as if Rex Ryan and the Jets are going to have to get their act together soon if they hope to survive this season and actually make it into at least two games during the postseason. The Jets are now 5-4 overall for the season and they just dropped their first home game of the season to the Pats. Mark Sanchez was 20 of 39 for 306 yards and a touchdown. That alone would have secured a much closer game for the Jets. But he just couldn’t handle the pressure and consistently miss his cue. Sanchez finished with two interceptions and was sacked twice.
The Jets will now play the Denver Broncos on Thursday at the Mile High Stadium while try to keep its momentum as it hosts the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night football. Both betting lines for these matches are available at betias.com
