New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may still be banned for one more game, but he is still able to enjoy his team's victory when they win.
The Patriots defeated the Houston Texans on Thursday night by a scoreline of 27-0. They picked up the victory without Brady, but also without his backup Jimmy Garoppolo, who was sidelined as well with a shoulder injury.
Instead, rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett was under center to take the snaps and was able to finish with 103 passing yards, 48 rushing yards, and a rushing touchdown, much to the surprise of many critics that thought Houston would win because of his lack of NFL experience.

The picture features Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola and cornerback Malcolm Butler annoying a Texan bull while he attempts to draw up plays, demonstrating how despite what the Texans ran, they were unable to score a single point in the game.

Brady's four-game suspension means he will miss New England's next game against the Buffalo Bills. If they're able to defeat their divisional rivals and stay undefeated, the team will be in a really good position and well on their way to the playoffs despite the fact they didn't have their star quarterback for the first four games of the season.
