Grading Every New England Patriots Starter's 2013 Regular Season
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports
Where did Tom Brady's 2013 performance grade out?

When grading each New England Patriots starter's 2013 season, it was amazing to see the amount of change that occurred between the bookend wins over the Buffalo Bills.

Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly? Gone.

Jerod Mayo? Not on the field.

Rob Gronkowski and Sebastian Vollmer? Injured reserve.

Even with all the incomplete grades, the Patriots were able to somehow pull off a 12-4 season and secure a first-round bye in the playoffs. Coach Bill Belichick certainly earned himself high marks.

Here is how the Patriots starters graded out in 2013.


Note: To qualify as a starter, a player must have played 250 snaps on offense or 500 snaps on defense.

Players are graded on the standard scale in relation to their preseason expectations. Higher grades are given for creating turnovers, consistent technique and creating winning situations. Lower grades are a result of penalties, missed assignments and untimely miscues.
