Patriots at Giants: Tom Brady PostGame TranscriptThomas J. Russo - USA TODAY Sports

On the fact he’s played in some exciting games and where he ranks this one:

“Yeah, a lot of game-changing plays so I’m glad we came out on top.  You know, we fought to the end.  That’s a tough team and it always comes down to the end with them.  We talked about it before the game, it was, you know, play hard for 60 minutes and it took every last second. so proud of our team and the way we fought but, you know, we can do some things better than we did today, certainly I can and I’m glad we’re 9-0.”

On what he saw on the fourth down completion on the final drive:

“We were just trying to find some space.  We had an in-breaking route to Danny [Amendola], he always makes big plays.  He’s a great player for us and he always comes up big when we need him so it was a great play by Danny.”

On if he saw him become uncovered right away at the start of the play:

“Yeah, I was just trying to find anybody who had a little space and Danny got it.  Gronk was trying to run free and Danny sprung free, got him the ball, and it was a big play.  Then he made a big play at the end there on the blitz and made someone miss and got some yards so it was a great play.

On his thoughts on the fact there was talk about the fact the Giants defense wasn’t what it used to be but they came to play today and what he thought of their defense overall:

“They played great.  I think they’ve always had a good defense.  They’re well-coached.  They’re a very good football team.  We didn’t play our best, but we made enough plays at the end.

On what his mindset was on the final drive after struggling for most of the game:

“Sure, the defense made some great plays there to give us some opportunities.  So I was glad they hung in there all day against a very good offense.  Eli[Manning]’s had a good game, you know, they’ve got a very good team, very good offense and our defense came up big and ended up making them kick a field goal there at the end and then we got just enough time to kind of get it down the field.  You know, execution was okay, obviously it could have been better, but we got enough yards and then Steve [Gostkowski]’s such a clutch kicker, it was great to see the ball go through the uprights.”

On if his mind flashed to the Super Bowls at all:

“Um…Nope.”

On what he likes about this team:

“Yeah, we’ve got to find different ways.  You know and guys stepped in there when Julian [Edelman] got hurt and we were down a bunch of tackles, guys are playing out of position, and I just think we keep grinding our way through it and you’ve gotta find different ways to win.  You know, the defense came up then we needed it to, offense, made a few plays when we needed to but it was a great day.”

On what happened on the interception at the goal line:

It was just a bad…obviously a bad throw.  Just a terrible throw.

On if it was a miscommunication:

It was a terrible throw.
