“It’s hard to make those, but we were able to convert a few,” Belichick said. “You’d like to think you can make the third-and-one and third-and-twos, but the third-and-17s, those are little bit tougher.”
Brady has passed effectively but has thrown just eight touchdown passes with one interception. His ability to understand defenses and the best way to attack them remains exceptional.
“You can’t just throw it all day. You can’t just run it all day. You have to be able to do both,” Brady said. “It’s been pretty good the last few weeks.”
