Like: Jacoby Brissett
We have to mention the quarterback who orchestrated the win by maintaining his poise and simply doing what was asked of him in Week 3. Brissett piloted the ship, and most of all, he did not make a single major mistake in the Patriots’ shutout win.
Brissett wasn’t a fantasy football stud by any means, but he was never supposed to be. The rookie won like Brady often won in the early days of his glorious career, by making the throws he had to make with an effective running game and an suffocating defense assisting him.
The story of the 2016 Patriots is already being shaped by the next-man-up philosophy. The Patriots adjusted like they had to in Week 3, giving Brissett a digestible grouping of plays to execute, which he did successfully.
Outstanding coaching was a major reason behind the strong play of Brissett.
