Tom Brady: 'I feel really good this week. I am very happy about that'

FOXBORO -- For the first time in three weeks, it doesn't appear Tom Brady will need to miss a practice with his Achilles injury.

This may be bad news for the Steelers on Sunday.

"I just feel better," Brady said Thursday. "It’s a short week so try and get out there and practice. Like I said, I take it week-to-week and I feel really good this week. I am very happy about that.”

Brady has dominated the Steelers of late, as since 2007 Brady is completing 72 percent of his passes for 2,273 yards with 22 touchdowns and no interceptions for a quarterback rating of 127.5. This has primarily been because the Steelers play the same zone defense that Brady has picked apart. 

The quarterback is expecting more of the same on Sunday.

“We’re going to try and go out and play the way we play, too," he said. "That is what makes for a good game. They have a lot of good teams over the years. These are always pretty big matchups and this is a big one for both of us.”

The winner on Sunday will in all likelihood be the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
