The Patriots wound up losers in a frustrating 23-16 home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
The defeat put an end to a 21 game winning streak at Gillette Stadium.
On social media Monday, quarterback Tom Brady revived a now infamous line from his head coach in an effort to turn the page.
Speaking on WEEI’s Greg Hill Show Monday, Brady wasn’t putting blame on or creating excuses with the referees, who also had a rough night.
“Well, I think when you play sports long enough, sometimes you’re the recipient of things that go your way and then you’re on the other side of it, too,” he said. “For me, I don’t think too much about them. I wish they would go our way and unfortunately they didn’t. That doesn’t take away from when you watch the game all the different things we had in our control that I wish we could have done a little bit better.”
“We’re just trying to keep grinding them out and tried to put ourselves in a position there at the end with four plays in the red area and just didn’t produce well enough to get the job done. I don’t ever make any excuses and I’d certainly never blame the referees. I just look at what we’ve got to do and how we have to get back to work this week and find a way to go to Cincinnati and get a win.”
Julian Edelman also echoed the words of their head coach on Monday.
We’re on to Cincinnati.
