NFL Week 5 grades: Tom Brady's monster day helps Buccaneers land 'A'; Ravens get a 'B' for wild Monday win

Tom Brady has actually remained in the NFL for so long that it seems like he’s accomplished whatever there is to achieve, however as it ends up, he in fact did something on Sunday that he had actually never ever done prior to in his 21-year profession. 

During Tampa Bay’s controling 45-17 win over the Dolphins, Brady tossed for 411 backyards and 5 goals, marking the very first time that he’s tossed for 5 or more goals in a video game where he likewise tossed for 400 or more backyards. In 21 years, Brady had actually tossed for 5 or more goals an overall of 8 times, however he had actually never ever struck the 400-yard mark when doing so. 

Brady is now connected with Peyton Manning for the second-most five-touchdown video games in NFL history, tracking just Drew Brees, who ended his profession with 11. 

With Brady taking on a familiar enemy in Dolphins coach Brian Flores — the 2 invested 16 years together in New England — it nearly looked like the  44-year-old quarterback understood whatever the Dolphins were going to do prior to they in fact did it. 

The Buccaneers quarterback diced up the Dolphins defense and there’s absolutely nothing Miami might do to stop him. 

Brady’s 5 goal passes went to 3 various gamers and the most interesting rating absolutely went to Antonio Brown, who captured a brief pass and turned it into a 62-yard TD. 

That rating was Brady’s 45th profession goal pass of 50 backyards or more, which is connected for the 3rd most in NFL history. Brown in fact reached 900 profession receptions on Sunday, reaching the mark in 143 video games, which is quicker than any other gamer in NFL history (Marvin Harrison had the old record, which was 149 video games).  

Although it’s simple to offer Brown a great deal of the credit for that rating — and you most likely ought to — there were likewise a couple of tosses where Brady is worthy of the majority of the credit, like this fourth-quarter goal pass to Mike Evans. 

What Brady is doing at age 44 does not even appear possible. There are quarterbacks half his age who have difficulty making that toss, however he makes it look simple. As a matter of truth, he makes whatever appearance simple. 

When Brady is on his “A” video game, the Buccaneers are difficult to beat and the quarterback was absolutely on his “A” video game versus the Dolphins. The Buccaneers wound up amounting to 558 backyards versus the Dolphins, which was the second-highest overall ever with Brady and the fourth-highest overall in group history.
