Brady completed 18 of 38 passes for 287 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round victory over the Texans. He also lost a yard on four rushes.

EDGE Analysis

After throwing just two interceptions all season, Brady looked out of sorts in the first half, as an aggressive Texans pass rush and a pick by A.J. Bouye at the Patriots' 34-yard line had him and the New England offense looking rather pedestrian. The future Hall of Famer began to snap out of it late in the second quarter, however, completing a 48-yard bomb to Julian Edelman to help set up an eventual Stephen Gostowski 19-yard field goal with seven seconds to go before halftime. Although he did throw his second interception in the third quarter, Brady was otherwise much more effective in the second half, finishing off a nine-play, 90-yard drive with a 19-yard scoring dart to James White, and connecting with Edelman on several more occasions. His sub-50 percent completion rate and 56.9 QBR notwithstanding, Brady did flash his typical rapport with Edelman and Chris Hogan, and should be primed for yet another AFC championship round appearance next Sunday.

Brady (thigh) completed 25 of 33 passes for 276 yards and three TDs in Sunday's 35-14 win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

With the win, the Patriots clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs and Brady and his fellow banged up teammates will now be afforded a bye week in which to rest their bodies. After sitting out the first four games of the season due to a suspension stemming from his perceived involvement in "Deflategate," Brady carved out an outstanding campaign, helping the Patriots to a 14-2 record overall, while compiling a nifty 28:2 TD:INT ratio over the 12 contests he played in.

Brady (thigh) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Brady is thus in line to play as much as the Patriots' coaching staff needs him to in Week 17. While the team has clinched its division and a first-round bye, the Patriots still have an eye on securing home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. As a result, look for Brady to remain in play Sunday as long as the outcome of the contest is unsettled, though at a certain point, the QB may eventually exit the game, as he did in Week 16's 41-3 win over the Jets.

Brady (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's expected that Brady -- who practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday -- will be out there Sunday and play as much as the Patriots' coaching staff needs him to in Week 17. The team has clinched its division and a first-round bye, but the Patriots still have designs on securing home-field advantage throughout AFC playoffs. As a result, look for Brady to remain in action as long as the outcome of Sunday's contest is unsettled.

Brady (thigh) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Look for the QB to be listed at limited at practice both Thursday and Friday, with an official questionable designation likely on tap for Brady upon the release of the Patriots' final Week 17 injury report. That said, it's assumed that Brady will be able to play as much as the team's coaching staff wants him to Sunday. The Patriots have clinched their division and a first-round bye, but the team still has its sights on securing home-field advantage throughout AFC playoffs. With that in mind, we'd expect Brady to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and then remain in action as long as the outcome is unsettled.

Brady (thigh) was not spotted at Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is nothing to suggest that Brady's absence from practice is anything other than the 13-2 squad managing the QB's practice reps with the big picture in mind. While the Patriots have clinched their division title and a first-round bye, the team still has its sights on cementing home-field advantage throughout AFC playoffs. As a result, we'd expect Brady to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and remain on the field as long as the outcome of Week 17's tilt is unsettled.

Brady (thigh) completed 17 of 27 passes for 214 yards and three TDs in Saturday's 41-3 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Brady, who had been limited at practice this past week, was able to head to the sidelines in the third quarter Saturday, with the Patriots up big. In the process, he was kept from suffering any injury setbacks, while backup Jimmy Garoppolo logged some reps at QB. Look for Brady to appear on the Patriots' Week 17 injury report, but whether the team has anything to play for next Sunday against the Dolphins hinges on the result of Saturday's Oakland/Indianapolis contest. If the Colts win, the Patriots would secure the AFC's No. 1 seed for the playoffs.

Brady (thigh) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Brady will take aim Saturday at a beatable Jets defense that allowed Miami QB Matt Moore to throw four TDs in Week 15. Though the Patriots have already earned a first-round playoff bye, they still have something to play for this week, namely home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

Brady (thigh) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jets after practicing in a limited fashion all week.

EDGE Analysis

We fully expect Brady to continue to work through his aches and pains Saturday against a Jets defense that allowed Miami QB Matt Moore to throw four TDs in Week 15. The Patriots have already earned a first-round playoff bye, but they still have something to play for at this time, specifically a chance to cement home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

Brady (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Though the Patriots may elect to officially list Brady as questionable for Saturday's game against the Jets, there's little doubt that the QB will be out there this weekend. In the process, he'll have a chance to take aim at a Jets defense that allowed Miami QB Matt Moore to toss four TDs in Week 15.
