It feels pretty good.
In all, Brady led six drives, the first of which culminated in a 4-yard touchdown pass to receiver Chris Hogan.
He was pleased with how he moved in the pocket.
"It's the first time having to do that in about six months", Brady said after Brian Hoyer finished up the victory. "I've been doing this or a long time, so a lot of it is second nature at this point".
Eagles quarterback Nick Foles left Thursday night's game against the Patriots with a shoulder strain, the team announced. "We've been competitive here", coach Bill Belichick said at halftime on the team's television broadcast on WBZ-TV, as the Patriots led 27-7 at the break. I have all the respect in the world for him. But like I said, I think everyone made a bigger deal because at the end of the day, he's a great dude. The good news is that means you can save yourself some time and skip this game altogether. "But I guess they had more fun (than at the Super Bowl) because they won". "But he was nice, as he always is, so I wished him the best of luck this season". It's just one game of action, but Brady certainly looks ready to make yet another run already.
"That was kind of made up to me because that was never my intention that I would be a bad sport", he said after the Patriots' 37-20 win in the rematch.
Foles got the start Thursday because No. 1 quarterback Carson Wentz continues to work up to full speed after last season's torn ACL. They're a great team. (It's a separate issue, I know, but it's worth noting that Johnson absolutely needs to find a real hobby if he finds himself looking forward to preseason games within days of winning the Super Bowl.) But fine, the Patriots had fun because it was the preseason. One thing that we can nearly definitively say after Thursday night, however, is that time won't be the 2018 season. "We're going to try to go out and put together a great year".
