Tom Brady has thrown 114 passes so far this season and has not yet been intercepted. For most quarterbacks around the NFL, that stat would trump just about anything else. But, of course, the Patriots quarterback is held to the highest of standards.
Brady was again relatively average against the Raiders, throwing for only 234 yards and just one touchdown pass. His rating Sunday was 91.5 as he hit on 24-of-37 passes.
Julian Edelman was once again Brady’s security blanket as he was targeted a team-high 13 times. The Pats’ star slot man caught 10 of those balls and finished with 84 yards receiving.
Brandon LaFell was targeted eight times and Rob Gronkowski was targeted six times. Kenbrell Thompkins and Danny Amendola were each targeted just once and Amendola did not finish with a single catch.
