Brady: NFL transitioning to ‘glorified college football’

Tom Brady has seen it all in his 18 seasons in the NFL, including the recent shift in the style of play.

"I think now, in some ways, pro football is more glorified college football," Brady said Monday on WEEI radio. "Maybe the transition is a more similar game than what it used to be when I first started."

The New England Patriots are preparing to take on the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night, a team led by head coach Andy Reid, who's known for featuring college concepts in his playcalling.

"I think football now, removing some of the physical elements of the game, it's more of a space game, you see a lot of college plays more in the pro game now than what I remember when I started," Brady said. "That's kind of how things have went over the last bunch of years."

The league has seen a surge in offensive production this season. Through Week 5, there have been 272 scoring strikes in 77 games, 25 more than any season since the NFL expanded to 32 teams in 2002. The figure is up by 39 over last season, according to ESPN.

The betting total for Sunday night's game is 59.5, the highest total of the season.
