After having to spend months and months of the off-season with the Deflategate cloud hanging over them, the New England Patriots would have been glad just to get out on the field last night.

And the Patriots started out incredibly strong, with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski putting on a show as New England ran out 28-21 winners in a game that was far closer than the final scoreline suggests.

Brady had one of the best games of his entire career, barely missing a pass all night long and looking as dialled in as everyone expected. And the Pats star seemed incredibly pleased with his performance.

Special Night

“Yeah, it was a pretty special night,” Brady said after the game, via Tom Curran of CSN New England. “I was excited. Our whole team was excited."

"We haven’t had one of these games in a long time, so it’s always fun being out there and getting the opportunity to go play. And we took advantage of it. Good win. I thought our guys played hard.”

Statistical Dream

Brady was outstanding last night. He completed 25 of 32 passes for 288 yards, with no turnovers and ended up with an amazing passer rating of 143.8

At one point in the game, the 38-year old completed 19 consecutive passes. He even appeared poised to break the all-time record for completion percentage in a game, but a few late incompletions bumped his overall tally to a quite average 78%.

The Steelers had absolutely no chance against a quarterback in such fine form, it didn't help that their defense left Gronk wide open on some plays though.
