FOXBORO — Tom Brady has always insisted on playing as much as he can, even when the circumstance and better judgment might seem to call for Bill Belichick to sit him.
The debate always comes up in blowout wins in the fourth quarter, end-of-season games when the Patriots have their playoff spot already wrapped up and the fourth preseason game.
Thursday night is that third situation for Brady and the Patriots. And nothing has changed, at least in Brady’s mind. He expects to play some against the Giants.
