Amendola and Hightower among Patriots' inactives vs. Saints

  • Malcolm Butler's reduced role stands out in Patriots' victory

Brady threw for 447 yards and showed none of the rust he had in Week 1 despite being without underneath favorites Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

"We were 0-1, and with the 10-day break, it felt like a year", Brady said. He was a great young quarterback. Impressively, he did so using many different weapons as the Patriots put up over 500 yards in total offense.

New England dominated the time of possession today, holding the ball for over 35 minutes compared to under 25 for the home team.

Although Brady feels great at 40 and ready to continue his illustrious career in the National Football League with New England, the defending Super Bowl champions are coming off a season-opening loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in New England.

"Communication was hard - before the game and all game".

Still, I expect the Saints offense to put up some points and Drew Brees to put together some touchdown drives. If he does the wheel route, the linebacker doesn't have any vision.

Brady was just 16 of 36 for 267 yards and zero touchdowns against the Chiefs.

The win ensured that the Patriots wouldn't lose Brady's first two starts of the season for the first time ever.


The Patriots rolled up 354 yards in total offense and 18 first downs in the first half, and Brady was almost flawless.

Gronkowski's brother Chris celebrated the monumental in the Patriots tight end's career. The team is last in the NFC South division where the other three teams have all won at least one game.

The Patriots scored 30 points in the first half, taking a 17-point lead to the locker room.

Gostkowski missed his first PAT attempt of the game but connected on all six of his next kicks (three PATs, three field goals). Brees' deep fade for Ted Ginn Jr. fell incomplete. "Yet, we have the right type of locker room".

Among the possible story lines as New Orleans hosted the New England Patriots in Week 2 was this: The Saints needed a victory in the worst way possible.

It would make sense if the Patriots primarily use the bigger and more physical Gilmore to cover Michael Thomas, but having two top-tier cornerbacks gives New England options as they plan for the Saints.

Well after Brady's performance against the Saints on Sunday, it seems safe to say the Patriots' quarterback is doing just fine, thank you very much. RB James White had eight receptions for 85 yards and Brady picked apart the Saints underneath.
