It comes after viewers of the game Sunday witnessed the Patriots QB’s heated sideline exchanges as the team fell to 10-2, per NESN.com.
“I do that quite a bit in practice,” Brady told Jim Gray. “I know they don’t always pick it up when I do speak, but I speak a lot in meetings, on the practice field and certainly in the games and in the huddle. I’m just trying to communicate what I see. A lot of other guys are doing the same thing.”
“It was a tough game (Sunday) night,” he added. “(The Texans) came out and played really well, and they played very aggressively. When that happens, you’ve got to go out there and you’ve got to try to match it. They got off to a great start, and we tried to battle back and just came up short in the end.”
