Heading into their game at New England, LaFell got to reminisce about his two seasons with the Patriots, which included a touchdown catch during their Super Bowl win over Seattle during the 2014 season.
The game Sunday will mark Brady’s first start on the Patriots home field since the star quarterback returned from his four-game suspension to start the season.
It was no accident that the Patriots had a season-high 33 points and 501 yards last week with Brady under center. “I just know we’re going to always prepare well, and we’re always going to prepare well and put ourselves in the best possible position to win a game”. Much like the loss in Dallas, an early deficit will mean it’s time to turn off the lights and come home. We’ll be fired up, too.
The Bengals are coming off a 28-14 loss to the Cowboys as a 2.5-point favorite in Dallas. Ticket prices for New England’s first three homes games dipped after an appeals court ruled that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was within his authority to suspend Brady, who announced he’d accept the suspension in the offseason rather than take the fight to the Supreme Court.
“We’ve just got to make sure we keep our heads down”, running back LeGarrette Blount said. First, their 39-year-old leader avoided four weeks’ worth of punishment, which can’t be dismissed after the way last season came to a halt with an ankle injury in the regular-season finale.
That puts the contest on pace to be the most in-demand Patriots home game – and one of the most in-demand National Football League regular-season games – since at least 2010, when SeatGeek began tracking the secondary ticket market. They desperately need a win. “He’s a guy you can trust to make plays for you”. If you don’t think “The Tom Brady Revenge Tour” is a real thing, you are kidding yourself.
FLATTENED BENGALS: Cincinnati’s defense has been roughed-up, allowing three touchdown passes of more than 40 yards and a 60-yard touchdown run in the last three games. The offensive line seemed to control the Broncos front seven throughout the game, as Denver was only able to get one sack on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
“It doesn’t get any easier”, defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther said, watching video of Brady having his way with Cleveland’s defence.
Tom Brady isn’t interested in answering any questions about Donald Trump.
LaFell wasn’t brought back to New England for this season and instead he signed with the Bengals.
Green can certainly be dominant, as he displayed with 10 catches, 173 yards, and one touchdown to single-handedly beat the Dolphins in Week 4.
You can talk about Brady’s receivers until you’re blue in the face, but the fact is none of them can hold a candle to the Bengals’ A.J. Green.
“Hopefully we can continue to build on that and continue to connect more, and more so in crucial moments of the game, not when the game is out of hand”, LaFell said.
