Tom Brady winning NFC Offensive Player of Month reminds us how bad Patriots' QB play has been


Tom Brady was named the NFC's Offensive Player of the Month for October, the 11th time in his career he's won a conference's Offensive Player of the Month award.

This got us to look up the overall numbers from every quarterback in the league for the month and it showed just how bad the Patriots' play at the position has been over the last month.

The Patriots played three games, while the rest of the league played four, but it doesn't discount just how bad the numbers are.

In terms of quarterback rating, Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham ranked 39th and 40th for the month, as Newton came in at 43.2, while Stidham was at 39.3.

Overall, Patriots quarterbacks, including Brian Hoyer, threw one touchdown compared to nine interceptions.

Meanwhile, down in Tampa Bay, Brady completed 105-of-159 attempts (66%) for 1,157 yards in four games, adding a rushing touchdown to 12 passing and throwing just one interception.

The Patriots, who are sitting at 2-4, clearly need to get better play from the quarterback position and it starts this Sunday in Buffalo.
