Amendola played 55 offensive snaps in last Thursday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, coming up with some clutch plays that showed how he is arguably No. 1 on Brady's list of trusted receivers. "We all want to do a better job, we all want to play better". "He works extremely hard, is a great example for a lot of our younger guys, just in terms of how to prepare and how to work and look forward to try to build on that and continue to get better and continue to grow in his role in our offense".
He's also been sacked 16 times, more than in all 12 games he played in previous year.

Through the first five games of the season, Brady has been hit repeatedly. He has thrown for 11 touchdowns with one interception and another pick-6 that was officially ruled a fumble.More news: Overwatch's Halloween Event Is Now Live With New Seasonal Items
Brady has had trouble with his left shoulder several times over his 18-year career, but he has never missed a game because of it. We've got to do a good job of that at the quarterback position.
Playoff talk is premature at this point, but that could change if the Jets upset New England this weekend. And though the Patriots beat the Jets 41-3 the last time these two teams played in Foxborough, Belichick said that game is one the Patriots "are certainly throwing out".
Brady credited the score and game situations for the frequency New England has been in passing situations this year. Right now, as the team is presently constituted, they are many flaws that are masked by Brady. "It gives us an opportunity to see where we're really at".More news: Congress To Release Russian-Bought Facebook Ads To The Public
