The Patriots have struggled in the red zone lately, but last week took the cake. New England was a miserable 1-for-6 in red zone scoring opportunities against the Seahawks.
Tom E. Curran says there are some easy fixes that would allow things to turn around in that regard. First is better ball protection - Tom Brady committed a rare brain fart by throwing a pick in the red zone last week and that's something that's not likely to be a frequent occurrence.
Second is better clock management. An intentional grounding penalty in the final seconds of the half forced a ten-second runoff and cost the Patriots a chance at an easy field goal. The Patriots later lost by just one point.
Tom Brady was back at practice Thanksgiving morning despite an Achilles' injury that kept him out of Wednesday session.
TB12 was also playing hurt in the kitchen later Thursday as he posted a photo of him preparing Thanksgiving biscuits for his holiday feast.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I wanted to say how much I love and appreciate you all for the support you have given me....Posted by Tom Brady on Thursday, November 23, 2017
Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, also took to social media to post photos of the biscuit master and family jumping for joy to celebrate Turkey Day. Tom's rocking the Uggs of course, but watch that sore Achilles'!
