Quarterback Tom Brady played his first game of 2017 in the same place where the 2016 season ended in euphoric fashion, Tom Brady Jerseysand that was one of the highlights of the New England Patriots' 27-23 preseason loss to the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium on Saturday night.

Brady started and played the first two series of the game, Rob Gronkowski Jerseystotaling 16 snaps and finishing on a high note by leading a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. The march ended with a 22-yard catch-and-run touchdown to running back Rex Burkhead. Brady went 6-of-9 for 67 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

"It was fun being out there," Brady said. "Last time we were here, it was fun playing. It's fun to be back here playing again. It was a nice feeling pulling up today and glad we got to play a little bit. I wish we would have won, but we had a good week of practice."

Brady's workload should increase in next Friday's road game against the Detroit Lions, Danny Amendola Jerseysas coach Bill Belichick sometimes plays starters into the third quarter of the team's third preseason game so they can build their stamina and experience what it's like to come out of the locker room after halftime and go back on the field.

Some thoughts and notes from the game:

That guy could start: Burkhead, who spent the first four years of his career as a backup in Cincinnati, looked like a nice fit in the Patriots offense as a dual threat. He showed decisiveness and toughness when running between the tackles and sure hands as a pass-catcher in finishing with 20 yards on seven carries and 50 yards on three receptions. The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Burkhead didn't play in the preseason opener, Dont'a Hightower Jerseyswhich was a coach's decision, reflecting that Burkhead is a big part of the team's plans. With fellow running back Mike Gillislee still sidelined with a reported hamstring injury, Julian Edelman JerseysBurkhead is making a case to be the Patriots' top running back in what figures to be a committee-type approach.

Gronkowski surprise: The biggest surprise of the night was that tight end Rob Gronkowski played in his first preseason game since 2012. In all, he was on the field for 15 of the team's first 17 snaps but was never targeted with a catchable pass. LeGarrette Blount JerseysHe came out of the game injury-free.

Roberts a notable injury: It is sometimes said that a successful preseason game is one in which there are no major injuries. The Patriots didn't come out of Saturday night unscathed, as second-year linebacker Elandon Roberts was carted to the locker room in the third quarter. He appeared to be in significant pain, hunched over after taking a blow to his ribs on a 63-yard catch-and-run reception by running back D'Onta Foreman.
