Research Notes

  • Despite the high number of 3- and 4-man pass rushes Sunday, Tom Brady was pressured (sack or duress) on 34% of his dropbacks, his 2nd-highest this season. Brady's 4 highest pressure percentages faced this season have come in the last 4 weeks.

  • The Eagles sent 4 or fewer pass rushers on 87% of Tom Brady's dropbacks Sunday, the 2nd-highest percentage Brady has faced this season. Brady went 24-of-48 with 2 TD, 2 Int and 3 sacks when facing 4 or fewer pass rushers Sunday, and has struggled against such rushes more with his top receivers missing time.

  • The Eagles scored 3 non-offensive touchdowns Sunday against the Patriots, the first time a team had done that since the Packers in Week 11 of last season (AGAINST the Eagles). Each score was a rarity against the Patriots. - The blocked punt return touchdown by Najee Goode was the first allowed by the Patriots since Week 11 of 2009 (Jets).- Malcolm Jenkins' 99-yard interception return of a Tom Brady pass was the longest allowed by Brady in his career.- Darren Sproles' punt return touchdown was the first such score against the Patriots since Week 17 of 2006 (Adam Jones, Titans).

  • Tom Brady's 36-yard CATCH against the Eagles was the 2nd of his career (the other was a 23-yarder in 2001 against the Dolphins). That gives Brady a career 29.5 yards per reception, the highest by any player since the merger who has caught multiple passes and attempted at least 10 career passes. He's in pretty solid company, well ahead of Elway and Kelly.

  • This is the first time the Patriots allowed 35 consecutive points since Sept. 26, 1993 against the Jets (trailed 45-0).

  • This is the first time this season the Patriots did not lead at halftime in a home game.
