The New England Patriots won a hotly-contested divisional battle with the Miami Dolphins, but star quarterback Tom Brady did not look like his normally productive self.

Of course, a quick look at his throwing hand showed that it didn't exactly appear normal either.

Brady completed the majority of his passes, but did not appeared able to drive the ball deep down the field to his young receivers.

He did find the end zone on a 14-yard pass to Aaron Dobson, but finished the game 13-of-22 for just 116 yards.

According to, Brady had the fingers of his throwing hand taped before the game began. This could indicate that he has been dealing with the injury for some time.

While  it appeared Brady played through the injury on Sunday, the veteran quarterback has suggested that his hand was, in fact, just fine.

If Brady's hand really wasn't bothering him, then his pedestrian performance might indicate that his nagging shoulder injury is having more of an effect than previously believed.

Or perhaps the 14th-year signal-caller is finally starting to slow down.
