Patriots at Cowboys: Tom Brady PostGame TranscriptGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

On what adjustments they made after seeing the Cowboys’ different front:

Yeah, there were a lot of adjustments today.  I don’t think we practiced much of what they were doing.  But I think our defense played great.  They played just awesome. Got us turnovers, critical plays, got us the ball before half and Steve [Gostkowski] made a great kick.  So, just a lot of clutch plays by our defense, special teams, offense.  We made a few plays, but we can play better than that.

On if the pressure today was particularly frustrating:

Yeah, it’s a good front.  They’ve got, you know, good team speed, I was probably holding it too long on some of those plays.  But our offensive line, I think they do a great job and like I said, there were adjustments, some different things, you know, it’s four games into the year, you can’t practice everything, so we’ll make the adjustments and hopefully be better next week.

On what they did against Gronk in the first half:

Yeah, they had some good personnel on defense and I think they just played a few different fronts, a few different coverages, stuff they hadn’t shown.  So they came in with an approach and I thought we settled in, made some plays there to start the second half.  But we can play better.

On if he thought it was because they had Hardy and McClain to do some of the things they couldn’t do in the past:

Sure, I think those are great players.  Two great players.  Add them to the mix and they’ve got a good defense.  It was a big win for us.  Going on the road, it’s never easy, and certainly they get two of their key guys back, it’s going to be a good team.  They’re obviously dealing with some injuries but I’m glad we got the win.

On seeing Dion Lewis make plays and if he can liken him to any players from the past:

Yeah, he’s pretty unique.  He’s done a great job for us. I mean he’s come in and made a huge impact on our team.  I’m sure he had a lot of belief in himself and obviously missing a lot of football last year. He’s just been an amazing player for our team through four games. So we’ve got to keep it going it’s a long season.  We’re only four games into it, and we’re going to need all those backs to play well this year.

On getting rid of the ball quicker, if there were any other adjustments made in the second half:

I think we just made a couple more plays.
