Brady leads the league with a 132.6 passer rating, a 75.2 percent completion percentage, 9.9 yards per pass attempt, a perfect 0.0 percent pass interception percentage and a 7.9 percent passing touchdown percentage. All of those numbers would be career highs for Brady, who is in his 17th season. He certainly isn’t rusty.
