The New England Patriots are playing (10th Jan 20 at 5:46am UTC)
arguably their best game of the season tonight considering the quality and record of their opponent. The 5-0 Kansas City Chiefs have been outplayed on offense and defense so far: the Patriots are holding their high-powered offense to field goals instead of touchdowns Hjalte Froholdt NFL Jersey , while the team’s very own offense has been efficient.The latest example of this is the team’s third touchdown of the night:The one-yard touchdown run by first-round rookie Sony Michel capped a seven-play, 75-yard drive that saw a pass interference penalty against Kansas City set up New England at the 1-yard line. The penalty was drawn by Josh Gordon, who got behind the defense and had to be stopped via tackle before hauling in a potential touchdown.New England took advantage of the prime field position with Michel scoring his second touchdown of the night – and fourth overall of his pro career. Tom Brady and Drew Brees each have 522 career touchdown passes Hjalte Froholdt NFL Draft , putting them both 17 behind Peyton Manning’s NFL record of 539. Seeing which one of them would break Manning’s record first should have been one of the best storylines of this NFL season.But with Brees now injured and out about six weeks, it appears that Brady will break the record well before Brees.So far this season Brady has five touchdown passes, and if he keeps averaging two or three a game he’ll break Manning’s record around the midway point of the season Hjalte Froholdt Buffalo Bills Jersey , just when Brees should return from his hand injury.Assuming he stays healthy, Brady is a near lock to break Manning’s record this season. Brees still has a chance to pass Manning late in the year, but he’s likely to fall far enough behind Brady that he’ll have to keep playing after Brady retires in order to have the career touchdown record.
