If there is a quarterback that knows how to overcome a top-ranked defensive unit that is Tom Brady, more so when playing at home.

For his career, Brady has a passer rating of 97 and is 6-0 when facing a top-ranked defense at home. The problem is that Brady does not play defense and this Patriots unit is plain terrible as it’s on pace to become the worst in league history. Continue Reading →
