The Patriots were down 21-7 in the third quarter to the Buffalo Bills before Tom Brady led his team on six straight touchdown scoring drives to pull out a comfortable 52-28 win.  Brady ended the game with 340 yards through the air and three touchdowns.  The performance put him into 11th place on the NFL’s all-time passing list.  The Patriots are 2-2.

Honorable Mention:  Charles Woodson, now back to playing safety full time, tallied eleven total tackles and one pass break up as the Packers rallied for a 28-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints.  His team is also 2-2.


  • Stevie Brown keeps giving me reasons to write about him.  Brown stepped in for the injured Kenny Phillips against Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football and ended the game with seven total tackles.
  • Mario Manningham isn’t putting up gaudy stats, but he’s staying
    consistent.  Super Mario has at least three catches in every game so far
    this year.  He has 160 yards through four games.
  • After catching 61 balls last year, Steve Breaston only has four catches in 2012.
  • Alan Branch recorded his first sack of the year.
