Tom Brady tears through Bears in Patriots' rout


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady put together arguably the best and cleanest game of his career Sunday in a 51-23 win over the Chicago Bears.

The future Hall-of-Famer connected on 30 of 35 passes for 354 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions, helping the Patriots improve to 6-2 and keep hold of their spot atop the AFC East.

Brady led the Patriots on five straight scoring drives to start the game.

He hit Rob Gronkowski for two of the tight end's three touchdown receptions in the first half to go with scoring strikes to Brandon LaFell and Tim Wright. A Stephen Gostkowski field goal was sprinkled in there somewhere.

Gronkowski hauled in nine catches for 146 yards in less than three full quarters, and LaFell amassed 124 yards on 11 receptions.

Sunday was the sixth game of Brady's career in which he's thrown for at least five touchdowns.
