1. Watching Brady in his fourth (and probably final) game against Dallas

Brady enters Week 5 with a 72.2 completion percentage, 1,112 yards (best in the league), nine touchdowns and no interceptions. His quarterback rating is just a hair under 120. And he has yet to have a bad game against the Cowboys.

Dating back to 2003, Brady has tossed 889 yards, seven touchdowns and two picks in three games against America’s Team, all of which were victories.

The Patriots donned their now-defunct silver alternate jerseys (remember those?) in the 12-0 win back in 2003. Brady put the Patriots in position for four Adam Vinatieri field goals to get the victory.

And then in 2007, Brady and the Pats roasted the Cowboys in Dallas by a score of 48-27 on one of their stops in that perfect regular season. That was the last time Brady played the Cowboys on the road.

One of Brady’s most memorable game-winning drives came against the Cowboys in 2011. His heroic efforts were the difference in the Pats’ 20-16 heart-throbbing win.

It wouldn’t be unreasonable to say that this will be Brady’s last regular season game against the stars (he could always face them in the Super Bowl). I’m excited to see Brady maintain his undefeated record against the most recognizable franchise in American sports.
