FOXBOROUGH — Tom Brady showered, dressed, and put lotion on his face without any outward signs of pain in his right hand. A quick study of his hand in the locker room didn’t reveal any noticeable swelling. He slapped a reporter on the back with his right hand while walking to the podium, and acted surprised to even be asked if his hand is hurting.
“It’s perfect,” he said about 30 minutes after leading the Patriots to a 27-17 comeback victory over the Dolphins Sunday. “I feel great. For the eighth week of the year, I feel awesome.”
