Rob Gronkowski questionable against Saints

Now in his 18th year as a pro, Brady has been sacked 420 times in regular season games.

As the announcers noted, Brady likely informed the team beforehand that if they were short of a first down, the field goal unit would come in.

Overall, this type of road victory should not come to anyone's surprise.

That accountability is one reason the Patriots are who they are and have done what they've done. "They pursue very well". The Saints are now 0-2 and still have one of the worst defenses in football. This win should help people relax a little bit more. Brady finished with 447 yards and three TDs as the Saints plummeted to 0-2 for the fourth straight year. He committed no turnovers - at least not any that counted.

When New Orleans plays teams like the Bears, Dolphins, Panthers (without Greg Olsen), Bills, Jets and Rams, these early-season statistics should revert to the mean. It was the first three-touchdown-pass first quarter of Brady's National Football League career.

Gronkowski suffered the injury on a 21-yard reception during the third quarter of Sunday's game. And neither one counted because of penalties, but two Saints defenders actually caught passes for would-be interceptions.

Stephen Gostkowski connected on a 28-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter to give the Patriots a 30-13 lead heading into the break.

Phillip Dorsett (knee): It was a positive day for the newly-acquired receiver. until he left with a left knee issue. He hit three different players: running back Rex Burkhead for 19 yards, tight end Rob Gronkowski for 53 and wide receiver Chris Hogan for 13. Brees has always been tough to beat at home in New Orleans and his quarterback rating is ten points higher in the Superdome over his career. "Obviously, there's a lot of things to correct". The Saints were 2 of 6.

Other topics touched on during the interview were Brady's longevity, how he wants to go out and that the 2017 NFL Season will not be his last. "I would say that we've had some missed opportunities", Brees said.

"We need to get more consistent play", Payton said in explanation. Hogan appeared to trying to treat soreness in his right leg in the second half.

Eric Rowe (groin): After starting opposite Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe eventually had to leave the game with a groin injury.
