Tom Brady Says Elbow ‘Feeling Good,’ Experience Helped Against Jets

Tom Brady's elbow was the focal point of the first half on Sunday, but it quickly became an afterthought as Brady went STATS in the second half against the Jets defense.

"No, I'm feeling good," Brady said on the Dennis & Callahan Morning Show on WEEI Monday morning. "It's football season. One week you feel good, the next week you're a little banged up. But I'm feeling good."

Despite speculation around a possible elbow injury having a negative impact on his accuracy, Brady went 26 for 39 — 66.7 percent completions — against a Jets defense that had previously boasted one of the five lowest completion percentages against them.

"We've played them five times now in the last 14 months, basically, 14 1/2 months," said Brady. "So, we know them pretty much better than any team that we play. … It's like, before you even get the scouting report last week, I'm like, 'OK, I know what we're doing.' This is the Jets, this is what they are, these are their strengths, these are the things that we can't play into."

On the night, Brady picked up 329 yards and three touchdown passes — his first time with that many since tossing four of them against the Bills in Week 3. Unlike that contest — or his first meeting with the Jets — Brady didn't throw a single interception.
