At 41 and going strong, Tom Brady awaits a 19th season

"I mean, obviously you're facing the best quarterback of all time and possibly the best coach of all time", said Houston defensive end J.J. "The last couple years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should have been". I've had a few experiences where I haven't been out there and I haven't liked those very much, so hopefully we can go out and start the season well. Much of that hope comes from the return of many key players from injury, but one prominent outsider added to the team, safety Tyrann Mathieu, is also expected to make a big impact. "I love being out there and the preparation, what it takes to be a great player". So I'm not sure what life would be like without it. "Personally, I'm going to have a chip on my shoulder, but I think it's bigger than that".

"Right now he's been doing OK in practice, so he should be there", Crennel said. If they maintain health, there is every reason to expect that average to drop precipitously this season.

"I think that obviously whatever happened last year, it was basically a six-game window into what he can do and that's what obviously teams have been studying a lot of relative to us this year", said Houston head coach Bill O'Brien, a former offensive coordinator with New England". I feel like I can go out there, I can anticipate a lot of things.

"I think it will be important to us to get this win early on", Mathieu said. "So you can't really be too focused on one". Try to be a good example in the locker room and provide great leadership.

Brady, who turned 41 on August 3 and is set to enter his 19th year in the National Football League, is coming off his third MVP season in which he completed 66.3 % of his passes for 4,577 yards, and added 32 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

"So Tom hit one, his second shot, over [to the right], and I see a starting quarterback, a Super Bowl MVP, a league MVP literally hanging over the side of the cliff probably 200-300 feet above the ocean trying to hit a golf ball that's a pretty meaningless shot because the pro already is going to do better than he would on the hole".

Lacing them up once again this season for the Patriots under center will be Tom Brady.

The Texans defensive end has played just eight games over the past two seasons due to injury, having back surgery on a herniated disc in 2016 and then suffering a broken leg early a year ago.

"J.J.'s a great player", Belichick said on a conference call Monday via Nicole Yang of the Boston Globe. So, it's just a very challenging situation for us or any team that plays them, but in this case, this week us.

Jack Brady made headlines last season when he drafted Cam Newton, not his father, to be his fantasy quarterback.

Facing a team the caliber of the Patriots isn't easy, and even if a team loses to the defending AFC champion New England squad, that doesn't make them any worse for wear.
