New England Patriots fans finally will get to see quarterback Tom Brady make his home debut Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
After returning from a four-game suspension to start the season last Sunday at Cleveland, Brady and the Patriots play host to the Cincinnati Bengals this week.
“Well I look forward to playing every week. It’s certainly going to be a fun game,” Brady said, per Mike Petraglia of WEEI. “It’s always pretty fun to be out there, we have a great crowd. Hopefully we give them lots of reasons to cheer. We’ve always had such great support here. It’s just a great place to play. Hopefully we can make enough plays and keep them loud all game.”
Brady showed little rust in a 33-13 win against the winless Browns. The 17-year veteran passed for 406 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Bengals have a much better defense than the Browns. Cincinnati is coming off a lousy performance against the Dallas Cowboys that dropped it to 2-3 on the season. Yet the team has the NFL’s 13th-ranked defense.
However, Brady’s return to Gillette Stadium might be too much to handle for the inconsistent Bengals.
