Brady unsure of passing game's capabilities
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have a quarterback, tight end and wide receiver who are among the best at their positions in the NFL.
Add Brandon Lloyd to that rich mix, and the passing game should be even better than the one that took them to the Super Bowl last season.
In the preseason, the Patriots' new deep threat displayed little of what he can do, catching just one pass for 12 yards. That was one more reception than Wes Welker, who led the league with 122 last season. And Rob Gronkowski caught only five passes in those games.
So even though history suggests Tom Brady will lead another outstanding passing attack, the first real test comes Sunday in the season opener at Tennessee.
