Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tom Brady snapped out of a recent funk in a big way, amassing 432 passing yards and four touchdowns to lead the New England Patriots to a 55-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium.
Coming off a four-game stretch in which he managed just two touchdowns and tossed four interceptions, Brady completed 23-of-33 attempts in directing a Patriots offense that piled up a season-best 610 total yards and produced the highest point total the Steelers have ever allowed in a single game.
Three New England receivers each eclipsed the 100-yard mark to help the Patriots (7-2) move to 5-0 at home this season. Rob Gronkowski garnered a career-high nine receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown, Aaron Dobson had two scores on a five-catch, 130-yard effort and Danny Amendola totaled 122 yards and a touchdown on four grabs.
Stevan Ridley added a pair of rushing touchdowns while compiling 115 yards on 26 carries.
Ben Roethlisberger had a big day as well for the struggling Steelers (2-6), throwing for 400 yards and four touchdowns on 28-of-48 passing with two interceptions. Jerricho Cotchery was on the receiving end of three of those scores while making seven catches for 96 yards, and Emmanuel Sanders finished with 98 yards on six receptions.
