With the New England Patriots offseason full of DeflateGate and drama, it was unclear if Tom Brady would even be making an appearance in their first four games. Would Jimmy Garoppolo take over the first quarter of the season? How would the New England Patriots fare? Would the rest of the AFC East have a four-game head start.
Through the first three weeks of the season, that obviously hasn’t been the case.
Brady ended up winning his appeal, allowing him to be able to play in the first four games of the season. Before the 4 games could come, Brady has already reached a major milestone in his career, joining the likes of Peyton Manning and Brett Farve. In their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Brady was on fire and with the score ending up at 51-17. It was obvious that he was looking to make his mark at his home field once again.
At the end of the second quarter, Brady threw a pass to Danny Amendola, who was open in the back of the end zone, earning Brady his 400th career touchdown.

However, Amendola must have had no clue what it meant to him and proceeded to give it to a fan in the crowd. Obviously, the ball was tracked down after that and given to Brady.
After the game, Brady didn’t hold back his excitement, “It was a good day. I think everyone enjoyed it. It was a good performance by our offense, a good team win. It was a good week of practice, and a lot of guys made plays. It was a great day out there.”
