New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had to dig deep in Sunday’s victory over the Cincinnati Bengals as he once again showed that he is the best quarterback in the National Football League.
Brady, who led the Patriots to a dominant success against the Cleveland Browns the previous weekend, completed 29 of his 35 pass attempts for 376 yards and three touchdowns against the Bengals; and it would be foolish to back against New England in their bid to win a fifth Super Bowl championship.
When you take a look at New England’s schedule, it isn’t that difficult. Brady will relish the opportunity to go up against some of the most suspect defensive units in the NFL and plenty of fans will be backing Bill Belichick’s men to go all the way this year.
Since returning from suspension, Brady has thrown for well over 700 yards; notching six touchdown passes and throwing no interceptions. If he keeps that kind of form up, the Patriots will be unbeatable…
Down the stretch, the Patriots face a number of difficult road trips – and Tom Brady will have to be at his very best if New England are to secure enough victories to guarantee home advantage throughout the playoffs.
Tough away fixtures against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will come as no surprise to the 39-year-old but a trip to Levi’s Stadium for a clash with the San Francisco 49ers could be trickier than expected.
At the start of the season, new 49ers coach Chip Kelly opted to stick by quarterback Blaine Gabbert but things have changed in recent weeks; Colin Kaepernick is back – and that can only be a positive sign for San Francisco fans.
As mentioned in one of Betting Sports’ most recent articles,
Kaepernick recently restructured his contract after he was handed the starting role in San Francisco once again. If Kaepernick can get that offense going, the Patriots will find it very difficult; the 49ers aren’t necessarily as bad as their 1-5 record suggests…
With Belichick and Brady, anything is possible for New England. The Patriots have defied the odds time and time again on their way to eight Super Bowl appearances and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Belichick’s side involved in the showpiece event at NRG Stadium in February.
New England are looking incredibly strong right now and Brady will give them the edge as they look to fight off competition in the AFC. If they secure home advantage in the playoffs, the Super Bowl beckons. Let’s be honest: nobody wins at Gillette Stadium in January…
