A Jekyll-and-Hyde game! First half, the Pats were flat as pancakes. The second half, Tom ignited the offense. One amazing throw was completed while he was falling onto his back! He threw for 4 touchdowns, and LaGarrette Blount broke 100 yards in this game. Tom is now tied for 199 wins as a starting quarterback with Brett Favre. His next win ties him at 200 with Peyton Manning.
It was the first time Tom has played as a pro in San Francisco. His hometown is San Mateo is mere minutes away from the stadium. Julian Edelman is also from the same area. They both had family and friends in the stands, as well as so many Pats fans, it sounded like a home game! Even Coach Belichick commented that New England fans travel well. A grand homecoming! :)
The defense showed some improvement but needs a LOT of work. Right now they're the Achilles' heel of this team. Hopefully they can straighten things out.
The Bills and Dolphins won and the Jets were on their bye week.
