Tom Brady hasn’t often been through the kind of night he endured Thursday night and still won the game. The 2011 AFC championship comes to mind. But this Patriots team is a long ways from that and Brady knows it. The Patriots quarterback was 19-of-39 for just 185 yards and did throw a touchdown pass that extended his streak of games with a touchdown pass to 50. The Patriots beat the Jets 13-10 in a game their quarterback was just 4-of-18 on third down conversions. And Brady clearly was not on the same page with most of his receivers including rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. “I’m glad we won but we just obviously have a lot of room for improvement” Brady said. “We need to try to get back to work and see if we can do better next week. “We have to evaluate and try to get it right. It just doesn’t magically come together. You have to work hard at it and you have to concentrate. All of us have to do a better job at that. The passing game is all about anticipation. They have to anticipate what I’m going to do and I have to anticipate what they’re going to do. We can do a better job of that. I think it’s unrealistic for them to feel like they can do it like 10-year veterans. It’s not what they are but they’re trying hard and they work really hard and they have a lot of skill and they’re great kids. We’ve just got to keep battling.” A very somber Brady was almost apologetic about his sideline bursts throughout the game. “I think I have to do a better job with my body language” Brady said. “I definitely can improve that. I wouldn’t say it’s a real strong point of mine right now. We’ll just try to keep doing better. That’s what we’ve got to do.
