The New England Patriots were upset by the Philadelphia Eagles 35-28 on Sunday. The Patriots threw the ball a ton, putting their hopes for a win on the shoulders of QB Tom Brady. He wasn't able to deliver a win, and Brady took the blame for a loss.
"I've got to make good decisions with the ball," Brady said. "If I turn the ball over twice, I don't think we're going to have the chance to win many games," he said. "That's what it comes down to."
Brady completed 29 of 56 passes for 312 yards and 3 touchdowns, but also threw two picks. The worst of those was a pick near the end zone that resulted in a 99-yard pick six for the Eagles.
"It was just a dumb play," Brady said. "There was really not much chance of a completion, so I should have just probably thrown it out of the back of the end zone or found someone else to throw to. We would've kicked three points ... That's about as bad as you can do for a quarterback."
The loss dropped the Patriots to 10-2 and out of the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the time being. New England and Brady will try to bounce back next week against the Houston Texans.Back to the New England Patriots Newsfeed
