ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Tom Brady went back to being Tom Brady.
One of Michigan’s 11 2017 NFL draftees made his regular-season debut.
And another one of the 2017 draft selections from Michigan continued his torrid pace as an NFL rookie for the Cleveland Browns.
Michigan has more than 30 players on NFL rosters or with NFL practice squads this season. Entering Week 3 of the NFL season, here are three former Michigan players who had standout games in Week 2.
QB Tom Brady, New England Patriots
It’s hard to believe Tom Brady is 40 and still productive. Brady rebounded from the Patriots’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the opening week, and he completed 30 of 39 passes for 447 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 36-20 win Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
CB Jourdan Lewis, Dallas Cowboys
Jourdan Lewis made his NFL debut Sunday, and he registered his first professional interception in the third quarter of Dallas’ 42-17 loss in Denver. Lewis also had 6 tackles against the Broncos.
