Exits game with groin injury

Exits game with groin injury

The only member of the Patriots' 2017 draft class to make the active roster, the fourth-rounder continues to impress both against the run and as a pass rusher. New England leads the all-time series 9-4.

In their opening game of the season, #Tom Brady and the New England #Patriots struggled at home against the Chiefs.

"Communication was hard - before the game and all game". "I've always watched him and admired him, the way that he's played he was a great young quarterback. We were able to do that, and that was good". Playing back in the same stadium where he won his first Super Bowl title, Brady completed 11 of 15 passes for 177 yards and his first three touchdown passes of the season in the first quarter alone. Following a quiet Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, the All-Pro tight end hauled in a few big catches, including this 53-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

Gronkowski was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a groin injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

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

The moves allow both linebacker Harvey Langi and tight end Jacob Hollister, who were both inactive in Week 1, to make their National Football League debuts.

This matchup is yet another area where the Saints probably looked at last week's game for guidance.

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

Before he got banged up late in the game, recent trade acquisition Phillip Dorsett proved to be a surprisingly reliable target. Sometimes the best defense is to keep your offense on the field. Brees' deep fade for Ted Ginn Jr. fell incomplete. "We'll find out what we're made of".

Among New England's inactives in Week 2 are wide receiver Danny Amendola and linebacker Dont'a Hightower. WR Chris Hogan also looked gimpy in the second half before returning.

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.
