Seven receptions for Aaron Dobson. Three receptions for Kenbrell Thompkins - two of which were touchdowns.

Mike Felger said it: The young receivers stepped up and made plays on Sunday. Troy Brown agrees.

"Yeah they did. And getting open wasn't the problem," Brown said. "Maybe the first couple of drives we saw Tom [Brady] double-clutching some passes, some throws there, and not getting the ball to the receivers. Had some three-and-outs off the field really quick there. But they got it together in the second quarter."

The rookie jitters may be a thing of the past, as each minute ticks by the confidence grows.

"Once you get into the mix of things," Brown said, "you get a little action going on, get hit, get warmed up, and you're like, 'Hey, it's going to be OK out here.' You can relax. These young guys relaxed a little bit."
