Research Notes

  • After missing two preseason games with minor knee surgery, EJ Manuel used the shotgun effectively to limit unnecessary movement in his debut. Manuel was 18-for-25 for 150 yards and both of his touchdowns out of the shotgun, while the Patriots put Manuel under duress on only 6-of-30 dropbacks Sunday.

  • Danny Amendola had 10 receptions for 104 yards and nine first downs in his Patriots' debut. Since the start of 2008, Wes Welker had at least nine first downs in a game twice in 77 games.

  • Tom Brady was 1-of-3 for 5 yards and an interception when targeting tight ends on Sunday, the second time since the start of 2010 (Rob Gronkowski's first season) that Patriots tight ends have not caught multiple passes in a game.

  • Julian Edelman (NE): 1st career game with 2+ Rec TDEntering today, Edelman had 4 career Rec TD.
