New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appears to be at less than 100% as Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys.
Brady, who struggled in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week, was listed as questionable ahead of this massive inter-conference matchup.
Brady's 6.8 yards per attempt are his lowest career mark since 2006, a sign that he hasn't been playing at the MVP level fans were used to over the years. Still, playing Bill Belichick and that hellish defense in New England is still the NFL equivalent of a death sentence.
The Patriots have become famous for putting players on the injury report the day before games. Rob Gronkowski was a frequent target of this designation, and now it appears New England is trying to sew seeds of doubt in the minds of the Cowboys and their fans.
As much as Cowboys fans want to believe otherwise, No. 12 is probably going to be out there at Gillette and ready to rip apart Dallas' defense.
