New England Patriots: Tom Brady’s Ended Touchdown Streak Salt to the Wound

New England Patriots Tom Brady’s Ended Touchdown Streak Salt to the Wound

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will let everyone around him know that the touchdown streak that was ended by the Cincinnati Bengals is the furthest thought from his mind. It is New England’s first loss of the season that stings more than anything. With that being said, there is no question the touchdown streak is salt to the wound for a Patriots team that took pride in helping their quarterback attempt greatness.

“I’m bummed that we lost,” Brady said, according to FoxNews.com. “I think that’s all that really matters.”

Brady threw a touchdown pass in 52 consecutive games, a streak that began back in 2009. Only New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has gone one step further with his 54-game streak, which is the best in NFL history.

There were several factors why Brady’s impressive streak came to an end. Even though the Bengals have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride this season, they are still a very talented team. The defense has showed up when it matters most, which was evident to the Patriots considering how the game ended on an interception. However, Brady and the rest of the team feels that the reason for the loss is not so much what Cincinnati did rather than it is what New England was unable to accomplish.

“We had too many silly execution errors and mental mistakes today,” Brady said, according to FoxNews.com. “It is hard to drive the ball down the field if you keep making those mistakes.”

The good news is the Patriots will be able to use the loss as a learning lesson. There is plenty to take away from the game that will help the team improve going forward.
