Tom Brady fought through a knee injury to lead the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the New York Jets. The veteran quarterback struggled with his accuracy a bit but managed to post 286 passing yards. He also found a way to help out his team by serving as a lead blocker.
The rival Jets, perhaps in the ultimate sign of respect for their longtime nemesis, opted not to take advantage of his injury by engaging him with contact in the open field.
Todd Bowles’ team may be 3-8 but their sportsmanship remains world-class.
