Tom Brady shreds top Baltimore defense in 30-23 win

Foxboro,MA - When Justin Tucker connected from 38 yards with just over 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter to bring the Ravens within 3, Tom Brady did what he's done so many times before. He put the team on his back.

On the next offensive play, Brady connected with Chris Hogan for a 79 yard score, his 450th career touchdown pass. It capped a night that saw Brady rack up 406 yards passing and 3 TDs against a Ravens defense that was highly touted coming into the contest.

LaGarrette Blount pitched in with 72 yards and a score in the 30-23 victory, annd the defense (when not being put in a tough spots by special teams blunders) put forth an excellent effort.

Next up for Brady and company is a trip to Denver to square off with another AFC rival, the Broncos.
