The Patriots gave up their first points since the first half of Week Six on Sunday [url=http://www.patriotsfansclub.com/kendarius-webster-jersey/]Kendarius Webster Jersey Boys[/url] , but the wait for their first loss of the 2019 season will go on at least one more week.New England forced three early turnovers to build a 17-0 lead and then scored 10 straight points in the second half on their way to a 27-13 win over the Browns. The victory is the 300th of Bill Belichick’s head coaching career over the regular season and postseason with the first coming as the Browns coach against the Patriots in 1991.In addition to making that history, the win also leaves the Patriots 8-0 with a trip to Baltimore next on the schedule.Those three turnovers turned into 14 points as Dont'a Hightower returned a fumble for a touchdown and Tom Brady hit Julian Edelman for a score a few plays after Lawrence Guy picked off a Baker Mayfield shovel pass. That touchdown drive was only 11 yards and the Patriots would put together a more elaborate 84-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter after the Browns closed within a touchdown.That drive was something of an outlier as the Patriots offense struggled to find their way into the end zone for much of the afternoon. Tom Brady was 20-of-36 for 259 yards, including a screen to James White that turned into a 59-yard gain that set up Edelman’s second touchdown of the game in the third quarter.Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had two catches for 23 yards in his Patriots debut while Edelman led the way with eight catches for 78 yards.The offense didn’t overwhelm the Browns and kicker Mike Nugent had one field goal blocked while missing another, but the defense made sure neither got in the way of the Patriots winning the game. They sacked Mayfield five times and he got up from the last of them with a grimace on his face.One of those sacks came on a fourth-and-16 from deep inside Browns territory in the fourth quarter. There’s nothing odd about going for it while down three scores at that point, but the Browns initially lined up to punt and false started before putting the offense on the field.Tracy Wolfson of CBS said the team false started on purpose in order to protect their only remaining timeout and head coach Freddie Kitchens will surely be asked about that after the game. He’ll likely be asked about the lack of discipline shown by 13 penalties, two failed replay review challenges and what he plans to do to stop the bleeding that his team has done over the course of their current three-game losing streak.Answers to the last one would be most welcome for a 2-5 team, although one imagines Kitchens would have already provided them if they were close at hand. Brady’s three career punts average 38.7 yards."

Lee/The Boston Globe via Getty ImagesThis week [url=http://www.Patriotsjerseyproshop.com/chase-winovich-jersey/]Infant Chase Winovich Jersey[/url] , SB Nation is celebrating some of the best random plays and most obscure moments in NFL history — those that will never be forgotten, at least by us. We at Pats Pulpit thought we’d join the action by revisiting three of our favorite weird moments all involving surprise punting.Tom Brady is the best quarterback of all time, but his contributions to the New England Patriots go beyond ‘only’ throwing the football at a historically high level: Brady also is one of the most prolific surprise punters the NFL has ever seen. Over the course of his career, the future Hall of Famer has kicked the football a combined three times — and every one of the kicks was pretty good considering that he is, you know, not a punter.Brady’s first attempt came in the 2003 season:With the Patriots up 10-0 late in the fourth quarter during their bad-weather matchup against the Miami Dolphins, the offense stayed on the field for a 4th and 10 attempt. It did not run an offensive play, however [url=http://www.Patriotsjerseyproshop.com/chase-winovich-jersey/]Chase Winovich Jersey Draft[/url] , but instead opted to let Brady punt — and he did an excellent job: his kick traveled 36 yards and was fielded at the 1-yard line. Starting with tremendous field position, New England’s defense sacked Dolphins quarterback Jay Fiedler four plays later to force a safety and finalize the end result of 12-0.After his first career punt, Brady had to wait almost eight full years for his second. During the divisional round of the 2011 playoffs, he got his chance to build on his first kick. And he did:New England held a comfortable 45-10 lead over the Denver Broncos with three minutes left in the game and Brady still on the field. Instead of taking any risks on a 3rd and 10 against a defense that employed Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil as edge rushers, the Patriots went with a punt — one that caught Denver by surprise. With the defense not lining anybody up that deep, Brady’s kick was able to roll for considerable additional yardage and 48 yards in total. It still is the longest punt of his career.Two seasons later, the NFL’s best quarterback was again asked to kick the ball away. This time, the Buffalo Bills were on the receiving end:The Patriots faced the rare 3rd and 32 during their regular season finale [url=http://www.Patriotsjerseyproshop.com/chase-winovich-jersey/]Chase Winovich NFL Jersey[/url] , and up 16-3 called on Brady’s punting skills again. The kick sailed for just those 32 yards before Bills safety Jim Leonhard caught it fairly. While it was the worst punt of the quarterback’s career statistically speaking, it kept his streak of no return yards being allowed alive. And despite this shorter kick, Brady’s punting skills are still evident when comparing them to other quarterbacks.Passers kicking the football away is nothing new: Ben Roethlisberger attempted a total of seven punts in his career, Randall Cunningham still owns the third longest in NFL history — a 91-yarder in 1989 — and even ex-Patriot Matt Cassel got in on the action when he kicked the football 57 yards during the 2008 regular season finale. Hall of Famers Terry Bradshaw and John Elway saw action at punter, while Danny White and Steve Spurrier even played dual roles for their teams.All in all, 22 quarterbacks attempted more than one punt over the course of their careers and Brady’s 38.7-yard average ties him for seventh among them. So the next time you are in a debate about his ranking among the all-time great QBs (hint: he’s number one) you can add his punting skills to the table.
