Patriots QB Brady has ailing shoulder

The New England Patriots square off against the New York Jets in week six. At this point, it does not look like Brady will miss the game against the Jets. The Buffalo Bills are also sporting a record of 3-2. But you wouldn't know it by watching Tom Brady play football this season. Through five games, Brady has been sacked 16 times or one more than he was all of last season (12 games).

Brady is 40-years-old and has never taken a beating like this in his football life. The team was without tight end Rob Gronkowski for that game, but it appears he too should be a go for Sunday against NY should he continue to progress.

There was a brief moment of panic across New England Tuesday, when quarterback Tom Brady was not at Patriots practice with a reported shoulder injury.

Without Julian Edelman, the New England Patriots have turned to veteran Danny Amendola in the slot and he's been extremely reliable through the first five weeks.

Projection: 330 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, zero turnovers. The Patriots offense has no shortage of pass catchers that can stretch the field.

This season, he'll be playing 50 or more snaps a game regularly. Right now, as the team is presently constituted, they are many flaws that are masked by Brady. No one expected great things out of the veteran journeyman, but the success in NY has been shocking. Brandin Cooks in his first season with the Patriots has 2 touchdown receptions, but leads the team with 379 yards.

According to National Football League stats, Brady has been sacked 16 times so far this season and hit 33 times.

Most expect the defense to figure it out eventually, however, having a quarterback like Brady helps mask a lot of the current problems. However, his completion percentage drops to 60 percent when trailing by nine or more. By capitalizing on explosive offensive weapons early in the game, the Patriots can force McCown into a game situation where he has been at his worst this year.
