Tom Brady throws INT, loses fumble in same game for first time since November 2017

The New England Patriots came away with a 35-14 win over the New York Giants on Thursday night, but Tom Brady still had a couple of turnovers.

Brady threw an interception and lost a fumble in the victory, marking the first time the quarterback had done those things in the same game since November 2017 against the Miami Dolphins, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com.

On the evening overall, Brady completed 31 of his 41 passes for 334 yards without a touchdown. He did, however, score a pair of rushing touchdowns.

Through six games this season, the 42-year-old has thrown for 1,743 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions while completing 65.4 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 97.5.

Brady’s numbers have fallen off a bit over the past few weeks, as he has thrown three touchdowns and three picks over his last three games, with all three of his touchdowns coming in the Patriots’ Week 5 win over the Washington Redskins.

However, regardless of Brady’s recent struggles, New England is 6-0 on the year.

We have seen this before from Brady.

Remember: last year, a rough second half of the season led many to believe that the future Hall-of-Famer was finally reaching his end, even though he threw for 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns and 11 picks while completing 65.8 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 97.7 en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.

He further proved everyone wrong in the playoffs, leading the Pats to their sixth Super Bowl championship and putting together some virtuoso performances along the way.

The Patriots will now head on the road to take on the New York Jets next Sunday.
