Brady sits, but Pats whip Jags in preseason opener

Rookie Stevan Ridley ran for a pair of 12 triumph over the new-look Jacksonville Jaguars.

Five months after a lockout began, it was back to game action, but not for Tom Brady. The Patriots starting quarterback dressed for the game, but instead yielded to Brian Hoyer. The second-string QB completed 15-of-21 passes for 171 yards, including an 11-yard score to Taylor Price in the second quarter.
