Ho hum. Tom Brady has done it all today, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for another as the Pats lead 24-0 at halftime.
Brady ran it in from three yards out to make it 7-0 in the first quarter. A Mike Vrabel TD catch – the tenth of his career – and a Randy Moss TD catch off a fake spike right before half rounded out a dominating first half.
The Patriots defense has forced three turnovers and held Jason Campbell to 83 yards passing, a chunk of which came on some garbage yards on the last two plays of the half.
The Pats will get the ball to start the second half and look pretty unstoppable.
