Tommy Clutch, Tom Terrific, Tommy Fashion Plate…it was all on the table during Week 6! ;)
The game was a rollercoaster ride at Gillette Stadium. In the first half, the Patriots dominated, leading by 10 points at the half. Tom finally looked in sync with his receivers. In the second half, the Saints began marching up and down the field and it looked as if the Pats might lose another game, their lead frittered away. It really looked like trouble when Danny Amendola was knocked cold and Aquib Talib went out with a hip injury. There were other key injuries, too.
With less than three minutes to go, Tom and the offense couldn’t convert on fourth down. Ball back to the Saints. The defense stops them. Tom and the offense have a second chance. Tom throws an interception. Ball back to the Saints. Another defensive stand! Chance number three! And you can’t give Clutch Brady that many chances, my friends. Boom, boom, boom, down the field like he was back in the 2002 Super Bowl. No time-outs like then, too. Laser pass to Kenbrell Thompkins in the endzone! Huzzah!
No more unbeaten Saints. Just the Chiefs and Broncos left. :)
And later on in Fenway Park, Big Papi swings and hits a grand slam to tie the game in the eighth inning and the Sox go on to win in the ninth after seven innings of being stymied by Detroit pitchers for the second night in a row. Whoo hoo!
The Jets and Bills lost and the Dolphins* were on their bye week.
Miami 3-2* (Bye)
P.S. They said Tommy was wearing a hipster sweater at his press conference. I missed it so will have to check Google. ;)
