Brady Bunch Renewed

Brady Bunch Renewed

After a disappointing start to the 2014 season, the New England Patriots bounced back in their game versus the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals.

 The Patriots dominated in every aspect of the game, solidifying a 43-17 victory. This big win, especially against one of the best teams in the league, have silenced those who believed the Brady Era was coming to a close.

 One good win cannot undermine the fact that Brady has not been himself this year. The Patriots were last in average yards per play prior to the Cincinnati game. Brady ignored all the critics and statistics, and put up 43 points without the offensive weapons he’s used to having.

 While it is fair to say Brady is on a slow decline towards the end of his career, he is still a reliable quarterback. Pentucket Junior Ryan Gavin stated that “I’d say he’s on the decline but he’s still a top 5 quarterback. Three years ago he was probably number 1. Now I’m not sure.”

 Brady’s legitimacy will be further tested against the Bills this Sunday. Hopefully he can pick up where he left off last week and bring the Patriots back to the top of the AFC East.
