With another rally tucked away in his files, Patriots QB Brady pushed by poise and precision

Tom Brady isn't fazed by pressure when the game's on the line.

The New England Patriots quarterback says he tries to focus on what the situation is and not on what happened earlier in the game. That approach worked when he threw a touchdown pass with 5 seconds left last Sunday to give the Patriots (5-1) a 30-27 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Coach Bill Belichick says having poise in such situations always has been one of Brady's trademarks.

Brady says he got used to the pressure while playing before more than 100,000 fans at Michigan. And he says good execution usually solves any issues of pressure that might be involved.

The Patriots' next game is on the road Sunday against the New York Jets (3-3).
