If you watched the Miami Dolphins defeat the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, you saw New England quarterback Tom Brady play perhaps his worst game of the season.
For the night, Brady completed 24 of 43 throws for 233 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. It is the only game this season in which he has thrown two interceptions. In fact, you have to go back to game 12 of the 2015 NFL season to find the last time Brady threw two picks in a regular season game (he threw two interceptions in a playoff game last year).
Over the past few weeks, Brady’s play has slipped a little. There is no question that he is still playing at a high level, but he is not playing at the level that we are used to seeing Tom Brady play. In each of the past three games he has thrown an interception and the normal zip on his throws that we are used to seeing just isn’t there.
