Keeping Tom Brady clean

By Mike Reiss

One aspect that stood out from the Patriots' recent performance was that in-game statisticians didn't record any quarterback hits against Tom Brady. It marked the first time this season that Brady went through a game and defenders didn't touch him.

Brady has dropped back to pass 554 times this season. He has been sacked 15 times and in-game statisticians have recorded 63 hits on him.

The game-by-game breakdown of quarterback hits against Brady from in-game statisticians: 

Bills -- 6
Jets -- 7
Falcons -- 2
Ravens -- 4
Broncos -- 1
Titans -- 4
Buccaneers -- 4
Dolphins -- 7
Jets -- 5
Colts -- 5
Saints -- 7
