After sitting out the first four weeks of the season due to a suspension, Tom Brady played his first game of 2016 on Sunday. He did pretty well.
The final line: 28 of 40, 406 yards, three touchdowns, no picks in a 33-13 victory. The poor Browns had no chance.
His day started -- how else -- with a quick out to Julian Edelman:
It continued with him finding another familiar target over the middle, and then again on a crossing route to get down to the goal line.
Before hitting Bennett again, Brady hooked up with Chris Hogan on a 43-yard deep ball.
At halftime, he was 18 of 25 for 271 yards and two scores. That was good for a 133.9 passer rating.
After the break, it was more of the same. Bennett couldn't have been more wide-open for his third score of the day.
He didn't have to do much else after that, and actually exited the game with just over four minutes left, giving way to Jimmy Garoppolo. The Pats cruised to the victory, the 250th of Bill Belichick's career (including playoffs). All in all, it was a pretty good day for New England.
