New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says fans shouldn’t worry that he can’t bring his A game on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Brady missed Wednesday’s practice because of an illness.
“I hope not. I hope they shouldn’t be worried,” he said. “But this team is going to test us. I’m going to go out there and do my best. All the preparation that we’ve had to this point is a part and going forward we have three more days to really get after it. Hopefully I’ll go out there and play my very best.”
Brady has thrown for less than 200 yards in the last three games—172 yards vs. Baltimore, 122 yards vs. Buffalo,198 yards vs. Indianapolis— but the Patriots have won each game.
“I think it’s just about winning. I’m glad we won and that’s what we need to do,” said Brady. “If we need to throw for 500 yards, hopefully we can do that. If we need to throw for 50 yards, I’ll throw for 50 yards as long as we win and whatever it takes for us to score more points than the other team, that’s what we have to do.”
