Tom Brady is defying all logic. At 40-years old, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down. The Raiders came into the game with one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL and Brady picked them apart at all levels with ease.
Brady was on fire right from the start. He completed 30-of-37 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns. He had a QBR of 95.5 and quarterback rating of 131.9. To keep it simple, Brady absolutely dominated.
Brady found Brandin Cooks for multiple long gains, going for 52 and 64 yards. The 64-yarder went for a touchdown, as Cooks finished the game with six receptions for 149 yards. Danny Amendola led the team with eight receptions totaling 66 yards. Running back Dion Lewis caught the third touchdown from Brady.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski was quiet, as he caught only three passes for 36 yards. They all came in the first half and he made them count as they all resulted in first downs.
The offensive line was strong again despite facing a fearsome pass rusher in Khalil Mack. Brady was sacked only once and saw very little pressure as LaAdrian Waddle filled in well once again for Marcus Cannon at right tackle.
