|Tom Brady passes for 323 yards and two scores in second half |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(12/8/13) Another awful start for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his offense seemed destined to result in an awful finish until he rescued them Sunday against Cleveland.
Brady was just 1 of 6 for 5 yards and an interception in the first quarter and managed just 95 yards passing in the first half. New England was blanked before intermission and has scored just 10 point in first halves in the last four games combined.
But Brady loosened up the Browns defense with short throws in the third quarter before racking up big chunks on longer passes. He played hero again with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman with 1:04 left in the game and, after his team recovered an onside kick, a 1-yard game-winner to Danny Amendola.
Brady finished 32 of 52 for 418 yards - including 323 in the second half - two touchdowns and a pick despite losing tight end Rob Gronkowski to a knee injury in the third quarter. He will try to maintain the momentum next Sunday at Miami.

(12/8/13) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is set to play as his team hosts Cleveland on Sunday. He had been listed as proabale with a shoulder ailment.

(12/4/13) The smiles of positive anticipation this week belong to Fantasy owners of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. But not every sign indicates a point explosion in Week 14.
The Patriots might decide to call off the dogs by the third quarter Sunday against visiting Cleveland. The Browns are a mess offensively outside of sizzling wideout Josh Gordon. They might not even have an experience quarterback to throw to him this week. A lopsided score could prevent Brady from racking up big numbers.
Brady has regained his mojo after a terrible run. He has completed 70 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and just two interceptions in the last four games. The Browns pass defense, which had been strong most of the year, is collapsing. They have just two sacks and have yielded eight passing touchdowns in the last three games.
Fantasy owners must hope that the Browns perform well enough offensively against a mediocre Patriots defense to keep Brady throwing. Either way, he remains a must-start in all formats.
|Tom Brady once again rallies Patriots for win |

(12/1/13) Quarterback Tom Brady once again rallied New England from a halftime deficit, leading the Patriots to a 34-31 comeback win Week 13 at Houston. Brady completed 29 of 41 passes for 371 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
After rallying New England from a 24-point halftime deficit Week 12 vs. Denver, Brady brought the Patriots back from a 17-7 halftime deficit Sunday. He didn't have a great first half against the Texans. He completed 11 of 18 passes for 108 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He did have a 23-yard touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski in the first half, but he also threw an interception on a badly underthrown pass to Gronkowski in the first quarter.
Luckily for New England, Brady was much better in the second half. He got off to a fast start after halftime as he completed all three of his passes on the opening drive in the third quarter for 78 yards, which included a 50-yard pass to Gronkowski. Brady then threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Shane Vereen on the second drive of the second half.
Brady came close to a few more touchdowns in the second half. On the first drive after halftime, Vereen took a 12-yard reception all the way down to the 1-yard line before being pushed out of bounds. James Develin then had a 1-yard touchdown run on the next play. Vereen also dropped a 15-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, which hit him right in the numbers.
Brady has surpassed 300 yards four times this season, including three times in the last four games. He also has multiple touchdown passes six times, including three times in the last four games. The Patriots host the Browns in Week 14.
|Tom Brady ready for Houston |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(11/29/13) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady should be in for a decent game against the Texans Week 13.
Houston is about middle-of-the-pack against opposing quarterbacks, allowing them to score 17.64 Fantasy points per game. Through 11 games, the team has allowed 18 passing touchdowns. The team had been experiencing some trouble in the passing game recently, as Andrew Luck, Case Keenum and Matt McGloin all threw three touchdowns against Houston Week 9 though Week 11. The team was able to hold Chad Henne to zero passing touchdowns Week 12.
Brady has been more effective since Rob Gronkowski's return, tossing nine touchdowns in his last five games. He's been on his best stretch the past three games, completing at least 68% of his passes in each game, and posting a quarterback rating of at least 91.2. Given his current performance, he could be a strong play against Houston.
|Tom Brady enters this season trying to remain among the elite quarterbacks. We expect that to happen. In 2012, Brady was a Top 3 Fantasy quarterback for the third year in a row. He had more than 4,800 passing yards for the second year in a row, more than 37 total touchdowns for the third year in a row and for the second time in his past three years he had fewer than 10 interceptions. At a time when running quarterbacks are all the rage, Brady continues to dominate. His receiving corps is in flux with Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker, Danny Woodhead and Brandon Lloyd gone, and Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce, Michael Jenkins and Donald Jones now in. He also has standout tight end Rob Gronkowski coming off back surgery. But Brady should still be able to post quality stats. He's a volume passer -- he's been Top 5 in pass attempts in three of the past four seasons -- especially if Gronkowski is ready for Week 1. He remains a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues, and we expect him to be drafted beginning in Round 5 in most standard formats. (Updated 6/26/13) |
