Tom Brady passes for 406 yards in return
Sunday October 9th, 2016

Tom Brady didn’t take long to throw his first touchdown pass of the season. 

Brady returned Sunday from a four game suspension and threw a seven-yard TD to Martellus Bennett in the first quarter. 

The score put New England up 14–7, after Brady led a drive earlier in the quarter that culminated in a LeGarrette Blount touchdown run. 

Brady found Bennett for two more touchdowns, giving the veteran tight end his third career multi-touchdown game and his first three-score outing. 

The second was a five-yard score in the second quarter and the third was a 37-yard strike in the third quarter.

The Patriots went 3–1 during Brady’s absence, with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett handling the quarterback duties.
