Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles forced New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to hang on to the ball a littler longer than he'd like. In fact, it had been an issue throughout the team's two-game losing streak.
Sunday against the Houston Texans, the clock was more in the veteran signal-caller's favor, and the Patriots got back on the winning side.
By our count, Brady took an average of 2.09 seconds from snap-to-throw Sunday night against the Texans. It was his quickest average time since Week 9 against Washington.
The quarterback was fairly consistent throughout — averaging 2.16 seconds from snap-to-throw in the first half and 1.99 seconds in the second half. Brady was incredibly efficient as well. Out of his 30 attempts, he didn’t have any back-to-back incompletions.
