BOSTON (CBS) – Saturday night was not a good night for the reigning NFL MVP.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady admitted that his performance against the Lions was less than stellar.  He said he missed open wide receivers and could not find a rhythm all night long.  Here are some of the things he had to say in his post-game press conference.
On the Patriots’ performance: “Well, wasn’t our best game, obviously. From the [offense's] first series on, we could never get into a rhythm — just a bad night all around. We don’t make excuses for it, it just wasn’t a good night. We didn’t play the way we needed to play. I missed open receivers and the careless interception there [at the end of the first half], you’re not going to win games if you play like that. There’s only one way to get better, get back to practice, get back to work, and improve the things we didn’t do very well and hopefully we play better next week.”
On rebounding from a lopsided loss: “I don’t necessarily think losing games and playing poorly ever helps. I think we have to understand, like every week, when you play well, there are things you need to do better. When you lose, there are things you need to do better. We don’t want to ride the wave of emotions: ‘We’re great and we suck; We’re great and we suck.’ We are confident as a team, we just have to go play better.”
Brady finished 12 for 22 with 145 yards while throwing a touchdown and an interception.
