Brady has big day in home­com­ing, Pa­tri­ots beat Bengals

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. >> Tom Brady had a smooth reg­u­lar-sea­son home de­but.

Play­ing his first game in Foxborough since the end of his “De­flate­gate” sus­pen­sion, Brady had three touch­down passes and went over 5,000 com­ple­tions for his ca­reer , and the Pa­tri­ots beat the Cincin­nati Bengals 35-17 on Sun­day.

Brady fin­ished 29 for 35 for 376 yards. Tight end Rob Gronkowski had seven re­cep­tions for a ca­reer­high 162 yards and a touch­down.

“I think I know how to get to that place where I need to be,” Brady said. “You only have so much en­ergy, and at some point you gotta cut it loose when the mo­ment’s right.”

Cincin­nati dropped to 2-4 for the first time since 2010, when it fin­ished 4-12 — its worst sea­son un­der coach Marvin Lewis.
