Reports out of Foxborough, MA are indicating that Tom Brady, along with New England's first team offense and defense will play in the preseason finale against the New York Giants.
Patriots' All-Pro quarterback, Tom Brady, spoke on WEEI's Dale and Holley Show this morning: "I think we're all playing," Brady said this morning. "We're all expecting to play. I don't know how long we'll play. But he (Bill Belichick) told everybody yesterday, 'Get ready to play.'"
The Patriots' first team offense and defense struggled against the St. Louis Rams last week, who finished 1-15 last season.
With such a lousy performance all around in the 36-35 loss, Brady's stats are deceiving. Brady went 18-22 for 271 yards while scoring three touchdowns. Two of Brady's three touchdowns were against the Rams' second team defense.
New England has had an up-and-down preseason to say the least. In the first two games against Atlanta and New Orleans, the Patriots' defense looked good while the running game looked promising. But, the Pats' performance against the Rams rose a lot of question marks.
Those question marks might be answered in the first half against the Giants this Thursday.
