Grade: B+

Tom Brady was under constant duress all night, and often found himself having to throw the ball away because of pressure. Because of this, Brady barely finished above 50% passing on the night.

He was still able to make throws when he had time, highlighted by a beautiful deep ball down the sideline to Rob Gronkowski, as well as 41-yard pass to Danny Amendola in the first half. For the most part, Brady didn’t try to force the ball when he was being pressured or couldn’t find anyone open down the field. He was fine just throwing the ball away, instead of trying to make a dangerous throw

Brady wasn’t all perfect though. Late in the fourth quarter, Brady launched a deep ball towards Chris Harper, who was shrouded in triple coverage. The ball was knocked up by Harper, but it was a Bills defender who came down with it. Brady also threw and interception earlier in the game, however it was negated by a defensive holding call.

While Tom Brady definitely didn’t have his best game of the season, he did what he needed to do in order to get the victory and improve the team to 10-0.
