This has become an all-too common theme for the defending champion New England Patriots.

One play after recording their 12th interception of the season, New England’s defense saw six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady throw yet another awful pick.

We’re not exactly too sure what was going through Brady’s mind as he released the ball. It hit Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins in stride. Realistically, this might have been one of the worst passes of Brady’s career.

This also comes on the heels of Brady tossing horrible red-zone interceptions in each of the past two games.

New England entered this game as heavy favorites. At least early on, the Giants have come to play at Gillette Stadium. The Pats will also need more from their future Hall of Famer quarterback. That’s for sure.
