Patriots WR Deion Branch explains why he “tried to run the last guy over” and his rapport with Brady

A few weeks ago, we wrote all about Patriots QB Tom Brady’s scramble rules and how the familiar with him can lead to big plays. Well, yeah, we saw that yesterday. On Branch’s 63-yard pass play, it was the ultimate example. Brady felt the rush, stepped up in the pocket, waved his favorite receiver downfield and they connected. Columnist Ron Borges described them as an old married...
