Tom Brady Reveals “Unexpected” Conversation With Peyton Manning & Mike Evans “One of the Best”
With three touchdown passes in the win over Denver, Tom Brady secured his 59th decision with 3+ TDs and 0 interceptions in a single game.
A big part of the stellar output from Brady had to do with the utilization of 8 different targets. When asked about the amount of involved pass receivers, TB12 had this to say:
“I think everybody contributed. Ultimately, everyone who is dressed is going to have to be ready to go. We’re dealing with a couple injuries that we had – some [other] guys got some action. It’s a long year. Everyone has to contribute. [We have] a lot of things to improve on. Obviously, [I’m] happy to win, but we’ve got to keep turning it up a notch.”
With some of the fore-mentioned injuries applying to the receiving core, second year wide-out Scotty Miller has had more of an opportunity to shine and produce in a big way. Brady was asked to detail the 47-yard pass to Miller in the second quarter.
“Great play by Scotty – he got behind the defense. They kind of jumped the strong side of the route. Scotty was kind of running back over the top of it, I threw it up there and gave him a chance and he made a great catch. He’s done a great job for us, he’s a tough guy and he’s got a lot of heart. All of the receivers did a good job today – tight ends [and] the line did a great job. We’ve just got to close some things out and stop getting behind. In the second half, we had a lot of long-yard situations that we didn’t overcome. Sometimes you can, but percentages are probably that you are not. We’ve got to figure out how to stay on the field.”
