News Blitz 10/3: Tom Brady returns after Patriots shutout loss

Today's News Blitz includes all the analysis from Sunday's rare shutout loss in Foxborough as well as the optimism created by Tom Brady's return from a four-game Deflategate suspension.

Monday morning's Patriots news falls under two very distinct categories: good and bad.

The good is that Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension is officially over and the New England quarterback is cleared return to his normal role and routine with the team.

The bad is that Brady returns following an extremely disappointing 16-0 loss to the Bills Sunday afternoon, the first time the Patriots were shut out in the history of Gillette Stadium.

The Boston Globe says so what if the Patriots fell to 3-1 against Buffalo, Brady returning is all that matters. The Globe writes that for at least one day, it was Ryan who was the coaching genius on the sidelines in Foxborough. New England's offense played it safe with Jacoby Brissett making his second career start and the Globe notes the plan sputtered all afternoon. The Globe declares that cornerback Logan Ryan was a big part of the problem on defense for the Patriots. calls Sunday's loss a “reality check.” The site also has the best and worst (annoying slideshow warning!) from the shutout. has Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola talking up Brady’s return. Hard to know when to take him seriously, but Rex Ryan claimed he had sources at Gillette Stadium telling him that Brissett was going to start at quarterback all along.

USA Today says Ryan’s Bills got a sweet victory over the Patriots. says Brady was actually working out while his team was losing on Sunday.
