Tom Brady very frustrated with offense in brief press conference following win over Eagles


PHILADELPHIA -- If you didn't see any of Sunday's 17-10 win over the Eagles, and you just watched Tom Brady's press conference, you would have thought the Patriots got blown out.

Brady spoke for under two minutes and was visibly frustrated with the way the offense performed.

The 42-year-old finished the game 26-for-47 passing for 216 yards and a 67.3 quarterback rating. Before Sunday, Brady threw 21 or more incompletions in a regular-season game only 15 times in his career, and Patriots were 4-11 in those games.

If not for the great play of the Patriots defense, it's hard to imagine New England being able to come away with a win.

"They are doing a great job," Brady said of the defense. "Keeping us in every game."

The offense struggled again, as besides a 10-play, 84-yard drive to open the third quarter that finished with a touchdown, the Patriots only had three other scoring drives and all of those ended with field goals. Also, after that drive to open the second half, the offense totaled just five first downs the rest of the game.

The unit has been an issue for the majority of the season.

"Up and down," said Brady. "That's what it looks like to me. We could probably do everything better."

As for the struggles in the red zone -- 1-for-3 Sunday -- and being ranked in the bottom third of the league?

"Yeah, yeah," he said. "I don't have any more (things to say). I don't know."

Is he concerned moving forward with the unit?

"I don't think it matters what I think. It matters what we do," Brady said.

Still, the Patriots improved to 9-1 with the win and are atop the AFC standings ahead of the Ravens by a game, but it's clear Brady is far from satisfied.

"It's good to win," he said. "It's good to win. Go on the road and win is always tough. They all count the same. But any time you go on the road and beat a good team is a good feeling."
