Last week: 4 (-2) Record: 6-2 It needs to be said. Tom Brady looks more like a former 6th round pick than a 3-time Super Bowl winner this year. ProFootballFocus’ grades him out as the 24th ranked passing quarterback out of 37 eligible. I thought it would get better when Rob Gronkowski returned, but in his 2nd game back Brady completed 13 of 22 for 116 yards, 1 touchdown, and an interception against a weak Miami defense and really didn’t look good. They won by 10 on the strength of their defense, which will get better with Aqib Talib expected to return this week and that’s the reason they’re still a top-10 team (along with the potential that Brady gets better), but you could argue they deserve to be 3 spots lower. If they don’t have a good showing against the Steelers this week, they’ll move further down. Week 8 Studs LE Rob Ninkovich CB Kyle Arrington CB Logan Ryan Week 8 Duds RE Chandler Jones DT Chris Jones
