Tom Brady on rookie wideouts: They came through with some big plays

The Patriots offense scuffled again on Sunday, but they were able to score the only touchdown of the game and come away with a 13-9 win over the Cowboys.

That touchdown was scored by rookie wide receiver N'Keal Harry on his only catch of the game. Fellow rookie Jakobi Meyers had four catches for 74 yards while the Patriots played without Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu, which led quarterback Tom Brady to compliment both of them on stepping up on Sunday.

“They played a lot of plays. Proud of those two,” Brady said in his postgame press conference. “They put a lot of effort in this week. They’re making improvements and it’s great to see. They both came through with some big plays for us.”

Brady was 17-of-37 for 190 yards overall, but sounded less frustrated after this game than he did after last Sunday’s win over the Eagles. It’s probably a safe bet that he has some of the same concerns about how the unit is performing, however, and the Patriots will try to get things going in a better direction in Houston next weekend.

  1. The shocking part of this game was Dak not managing to score a single TD with all his weapons. Even the hapless Browns and the Giants managed to score TD against the Patriots.

    Harry and Myers also had some key drops too. If Myers holds onto the ball for the Heath hit the game would have been over sooner.

    Don’t know how you got there from this story. Even for you, it’s quite a stretch. Have you run out of hilariously bad predictions or something?

    Totally true. On the other hand, Witten, Cooper, Edelman, Burkhead and other dependable vets had plenty of drops too. It’s almost like the weather had some influence on the game.

  5. Edelman was no bargain in the drops department either. Almost hurt them last week with the end zone drop too. But, conditions were tough.

  6. I thought the offense looked a lot better this week. They were able to run the ball fairly well and if not for a bunch of drops (understandable in this weather) Brady’s stats would have looked like a typical solid Brady game. On to Houston!

    For those who are Peyton Manning fans, that type of game was never one he had to worry about for (8) games each year. And for those who are stats people, why do “all time” stats exclude playoff games that TB12 plays in when talking about career stats? Apparently it is necessary to ignore games played against the toughest competition every year?

    The difference is they play in the National Football League and you don’t

  9. The offense does need to continue to get better. The weather was tough today but they still show signs of struggling when they need to make a play or overcome a negative play or penalty. They have no game-breaking player to go to. They’ve got a pair of tough games coming up. They really need to hold on to the number one seed while improving the execution on offense. It’s going to be tough. They can do it though. Go you New England Patriots!

  10. For all the crying about flags, Pats took a DPI vs Philly last week on that exact hit. This week apparently it’s OK.

  11. Both rookie wideouts showed promise also poise the moment wasn’t too big for them! the whole team stepped up and won a game in some tough conditions.
