Patriots QB Tom Brady's TD Pass Puts WR Brandon Tate Over 100 Yards

With departed WR Randy Moss watching from the other sideline (and mostly watching even when on the field, as he has only one catch today), Patriots QB Tom Brady launched a 65-yard touchdown to WR Brandon Tate, putting Tate over the 100-yard mark for the first time in his career. It's also Tate's first NFL touchdown, meaning only the most clear-eyed and/or desperate fantasy owners started Tate today anyway.

Brady's up to 168 yards, already topping two of his last three games. He has, however, thrown at least one touchdown pass in every game this season. The 65-yarder was his longest pass since week 13 of 2009.

Presumably the Pats will keep slinging, as their 10 rushing attempts have produced all of 19 yards, though Danny Woodhead did manage a touchdown. Not that you started any New England backs anyway.
