Tom Brady returns to game action as New England managed to go 3-1 in his absence. His first test, the 0-4 Browns in Cleveland.
New England Patriots
New England knew the task was going to be tough without Tom Brady for the first 4 games.
What they didn’t expect was almost having to start Julian Edelman in the 4th game. The Patriots used Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett through the first 4 games and ended up finishing 3-1, with the lone loss coming in the 4th game as an injured Brissett had to start.
The return of Tom Brady also comes as a sigh of relief for WR Julian Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski. The duo saw their production go down significantly with the backup QBs in.
Both are Brady’s top targets and will certainly see a lot of passes thrown their way this week.
Brady will be welcomed back against a defense that has allowed 378 yards per game and that has been absolutely torched by opposing team’s QBs. Brady will be back and be back with a vengeance here in Week 5.
The Browns have been nothing short of a disaster this season.
Last week, they even managed to recover an offensive fumble and still not get the ball as the refs awarded the Washington Redskins the recovery. It’s been that kind of year for Cleveland, who remains winless on the season.
Cleveland has been using QB Cody Kessler, who finished with 223 yards on Sunday and actually looked comfortable in the pocket.
Kessler’s main target, Terrell Pryor, has a combined 190 yards receiving over the past 2 games. Pryor has been used in almost every offensive position thus far, as it’s clear the Browns are running the offense through him.
Cleveland’s defense is going to be the difference here. They have looked horrible this season and will be going up against a mad Tom Brady looking to take out some frustrations following his suspension.
