In a big Monday night game in New England, Tom Brady is stepping up in a big way.
The Patriots jumped out to an early 14-0 lead over the Texans, thanks to Brady going 6-fot-8 for 114 yards on New England’s first two offensive possessions. The Patriots’ first drive ended with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez, and their second drive ended with a 37-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd.
Houston can’t afford many more missed opportunities like that one. With the way Brady is playing tonight, this game could get ugly.
UPDATE 9:25 p.m. ET: The Patriots are scoring faster than we can update the site, making it 21-0 early in the second quarter.
