While it wasn't a season-ending knee injury like Week 1 of 2008, New England Patriots fans couldn't have felt good seeing their quarterback come off the field bloodied.
That didn't deter Brady or the defending AFC champion Patriots, as they crushed the Titans 34-13. Brady didn't miss a play, he just wore a big bandage as he threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns.
''I need some scars,'' Brady said, joking about the white bandage still covering his nose and altering his usual look.
Hey, chicks dig scars.
