Tom Brady on playing Sunday: 'I'll be there'

Brady tried to ease everyone's fears Wednesday.

"I'm good. Not anxious about it". "I'm not anxious about it". There's a lot of bumps and bruises over the course a year.

We've listed protecting Brady as a goal pretty much every week this season, and at some point, the Patriots have to actually do it. In his history, he has gone 23-7 against his AFC East foe, looking to extend that record on Sunday as New England battles the 3-2 Jets for first place in the division.

Brady initially said he had no knowledge of tampered footballs, but a NFL-ordered report from Ted Wells indicated that it was more than likely that Brady knew of the tampering. "Don't worry about that". He was sacked only 15 times in all of 2016 (over a 12-game regular-season, having been suspended for the first four games), and has been hit a total of 32 times in the first five games of this season, including 16 sacks. That came in 2008 when he tore his ACL in the season opener. We've got to do a good job of that at the quarterback position. "I love that group up front". It's only Tuesday and giving a 40-year-old quarterback a day off doesn't seem like the worst idea.

Aside from when Brady missed almost the entire 2008 season due to an ACL and MCL tear in Week 1 against the Chiefs, he has been remarkably durable.

When Jets fans aren't sitting home watching their division rival play for a championship in the winter, they are watching them blow late leads to the crosstown Giants in the Super Bowl. "I just think it's the overall level of execution".

Brady has been the source of Jets pain over the past two decades, which obviously has brewed plenty of resentment.
