On Saturday, there were breathless reports that Tom Bradywas battling through an injury to his throwing hand after a photo emerged showing the quarterback with two of his fingers taped together during a Make-a-Wish Foundation appearance.

Not surprisingly, this raised concerns that Brady was less than 100 percent, which would explain the poor performance in last week's loss to the Jets, as well as his general underachievement this season.

Prior to Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a Pats source told NFL Network that Brady's hand wouldn't be an issue. You can draw your own conclusions:

Brady threw an awful interception intended for Rob Gronkowski early in the Sunday's game, but came back with a nice third-quarter touchdown pass to Aaron Dobson.

With 6:02 left in the third, the Dolphins and Patriots are tied, 17-17 and Brady is 10 of 14 for 70 yards with an interception and a touchdown.
