New England Patriots managed to get a close 17-10 win on Sunday against Philadelphia Eagles to improve to AFC-best 9-1 record. Despite this, Pats’ quarterback Tom Brady was unhappy after the game and looked like he was on the losing team instead of the winning one.
Speaking on The Greg Hill Show on Monday, Brady explained his behavior saying he was just frustrated with New England’s offense.
“It’s just frustration with the offense; we’re trying to grind them out. I’m happy we won on the road, but at the same time, I just wish we’d score more points,” said Brady. “We have to figure out how we can fix our problems as best we can.”
Brady threw for 216 yards on Sunday but failed to have a single touchdown pass. Instead, it was wide receiver Julian Edelman who had a passing TD against Philly. According to ESPN, this was the first time in Brady’s 20-year-long NFL career that he didn’t lead his team in a number of passing TDs in a game he played from the beginning to the end.
“I just wish we would play better offensively,” Brady added. “We have to go do it. I don’t think it’s about talking about it. It’s about doing it and trying to get the best we can out of our offense, and seeing if we can be more productive and score more points.”
Tom Brady is currently in the middle of one of the less-productive seasons of his career, which is understandable considering he turned 42 in August. Brady threw for 2,752 yards and 14 TDs in 2019 while adding five interceptions. His QBR is 90.1 through 11 weeks of this season, which is the lowest he had since 2013.
