Tom Brady absolutely destroyed the Browns in first game back

Tom Brady is back and just in case you wondered, he is still really, really ridiculously good at football.

The New England Patriots quarterback returned from the four-game suspension that was handed to him as part of the Deflategate saga and his comeback game came against the worst team in the NFL, the Cleveland Browns.

If anyone was worried that Brady would show signs of rust then they need not have. The veteran was incredible and he put the Browns defense to the sword en route to a huge victory.

Brady made full use of all the weapons that Bill Belichick has accrued for him on the Patriots offense, with old boys Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski getting their fair share of action while new signings Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan both starred.

Bennett in particular had one hell of a game, linking up with Brady for three touchdowns on the day. Yes, you read that correctly, the much maligned Martellus Bennett had three TD's in one game.

Here is the third of Brady and Bennett's linkups. Look how fluid and easy it is for Brady to drop the ball right in Bennett's basket. 

The 39-year-old finished the game with 28 of 40 passing for 406 yards and three TD's through the air. While the Patriots managed to go 3-1 without their star man, it is pretty safe to say that Patriots fans were happy to see him back.

The Dawg Pound was sounding awfully like Gillette Stadium there and only one man could do that. 

Today's 33-14 win is just the beginning. You can expect a lot more huge Brady performances in the coming weeks.
