FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady keeps winning whether it's a regular-season game, the Super Bowl or just an exhibition.He gave the New England Patriots the only touchdown they needed on a rainy Friday night when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 24-6 in their first game since winning their second championship in three years."You still want to go out and do good," Brady said. "You still want to go out and build confidence. It's all in preparation for the Colts game."The Patriots open their regular season on Sept. 9 against Indianapolis, seeking their 16th consecutive win, including three in last year's playoffs. They've won eight straight exhibition games."We've got a long way to go," New England coach Bill Belichick said, "in every phase of the game."Brady, the two-time Super Bowl MVP, went 3-for-4 for 31 yards and a touchdown. He left the exhibition opener after two series and 11 plays.
Corey Dillon is another weapon added to the already powerful Patriots.
