After I realized there was no way for the New York Giants to make a comeback against the saints I switched over to CBS to catch the Patriots game. I never expected the Titans to beat the Patriots but I expected at least some competition from them.

It felt a bit like the holiday season watching this game mainly because of all the snow that covered the field at Gillette Stadium. It obviously played a major role in the game because the Titans never seemed able to catch a ball. Even those that were thrown directly at the receivers were dropped making QB Kerry Collins stats some of the worst I have ever seen from a starter. He threw twelve passes connecting on only two of them for a grand total of -7 yards with one interception on top of that. Collins did not play the full game though, backup QB Vince Young stepped in but he also found it hard to connect. Young threw two passes both of which were not caught, Young also threw an interception.

For the Patriots it was an entirely different story. Tom Brady who played up to all of his hype was accurate 85% of the time when throwing (29/34). The 29 passes Brady connected on mounted up to 380 yards and six touchdowns, five of which were in the second quarter!!! Brady was took out of the game after one drive in the third quarter and replaced by Brian Hoyer out of Michigan State who made his NFL debut. Hoyer threw 9/11 for 52 yards. I can't comment on how good Hoyer played though because CBS switched games after the score became 59-0 due to a "lack of competition."

I give the game ball to Tom Brady he was his old self against a poor pass defence which led to insane numbers. Really though anyone who can score 5 TD's in one quarter deserves the game ball, NO DISPUTES!

Where can I comment?
