Patriots at Texans: Tom Brady PostGame TranscriptKevin Jairaj - USA TODAY Sports

On the way the team responded tonight after losing two straight games:

“It was a good team win.  There were a lot of guys who contributed.  We fought hard, I thought the defense played incredible, offensively we did enough.  I think we took advantage of some scoring opportunities and didn’t make, really, any big mistakes so that was pretty important and got the ball in the endzone when we had the chance.  So we’ll just keep plugging along.”

On how big of a boost it was seeing the defense keep making plays:

Absolutely.  I think that’s part of complementary football and you’ve got to play to your strengths and certainly our defense the last 4-5 weeks has been incredible.  So it’s good when they’re on the field.  Usually you don’t think about that but our defense has done such a great job, I mean on the short field, on the muffed punt, they had a couple fourth down stops, so they just did a great job.

On the fact Gronkowski was a game time decision:

Yeah, he made a great play to start the game too.  So he’s a huge influence on what we do offensively and he really toughed it out, so I’m proud of him.  Had a big touchdown catch.  He’s obviously a big part of what we do and it was great to have him out there.

On how good it was to see him out there, especially in the red zone:

Yeah, well offensive football is always trust and anticipation, and certainly there’s nobody that I trust more than Gronk.  He’s just a great player, he’s a great teammate, blocking, pass protecting, obviously in the passing game, short, intermediate, deep, takes advantage of good match-ups so, he’s a great player.

On the 45-yard play to Gronkowski where he had to throw back across and how did that play develop?

We were trying to get him back there so when I rolled right, probably further than normal, I don’t know what happened on the play but I kind of got flushed, I knew where he was heading.  He had a linebacker on him so I thought I’d give him a chance and usually he comes down with those.  So that was a great play.
