Josh Gordon and Tom Brady are Building a Relationship

New England Patriots

That's certainly a different strategy then it was 10 or 20 years ago, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has now given his thoughts on why it's easier for college QB's to transition to the National Football League than ever before.

"I think we're still figuring out what we're good at". It's just kind of figuring out where we go from here and that's a good opportunity for us. Even Buccaneers journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to become the only quarterback in National Football League history to have three-straight games with at least 400 passing yards earlier this year. A backup to Alex Smith past year as a rookie, Mahomes is one of many young passers enjoying the modern passing game benefiting from the NFL's stricter officiating mandates regarding contact by defensive players. "You see a lot of college plays more in the pro game now than I remember when I started". When Brady found Josh Gordon for the score, Brady became the only quarterback ever to throw a touchdown to 71 different receivers. And the more time "Flash" spends around TB12, the more he likes where he's at. "So, I'm not really sure what you're referring to". "I kind of wanted to head toward the end zone and we made eye contact, he threw it up there and it was a flawless ball so I had to try and make a play on it". Tom's spent extra time working with him and really all the receivers, backs and tight ends, as well.

"I don't really know what you're talking about", he said.

The NFL hasn't exactly changed its rules on roughing the passer flags for 2018. This came as a surprise to so many because of Gordon's up-and-down relationship with the Browns.

The 19-year veteran is watching the professional game change right in front him, but the Hall of Famer still isn't letting it pass him by. I'm pretty sure he does. "So it was awesome".

Before coming over in a trade from the Cleveland Browns, Gordon put up one catch (on three targets) for 17 yards in Week 1. Gordon sat out the entirety of the 2015 and 2016 season due to his violation of the NFL's drug policy.

Up next, the Patriots take on the unbeaten Chiefs Sunday night.

Cincinnati's 27-17 win over Miami was the Dolphins' second straight loss, dropping them to 3-2, the same record as the Patriots, but the Pats are actually in first place in the AFC East by virtue of the tiebreaker advantage they own due to their 38-7 win over the Fins on September 30.

Job openings at Gillette: The Patriots' roster stands at 52, one under the 53-man limit, following the waiving of cornerback-return man Cyrus Jones on Saturday.

The team's practice squad remains at nine, also one under the league limit, since it never filled the opening created when wide receiver Corey Coleman was released on September 29. The backs, Sony [Michel] missed all of training camp.

He's not wrong. Many fans, analysts, coaches and players agree with him.

The Brady breakdown: 199 regular-season and 27 postseason wins.
