Tom Brady wasn't very happy with his team Sunday despite the New England Patriots 23-16 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The two-time MVP reportedly ripped his teammates after the game.
"An irate Brady could be heard upbraiding the team in the locker room following the game, with several expletives mixed in for emphasis. Multiple sources who were in the locker room confirmed that the franchise quarterback lit into his team after a lackluster performance."
Brady, 35, also sent a message to the team during his postgame news conference.
“We played pretty terrible out there,” said a sullen Brady. “It came down to the wire, and the defense made some plays. But that was a bad 60 minutes of football. We got outcompeted out there, outfought. We were lucky to win.”
Brady added: “We started slow. We couldn’t do anything offensively. We couldn’t make any plays,” said Brady. “They made plenty of plays. We were lucky to be in it at halftime. Didn’t really do anything in the second half in the run game or the pass game, so just a poor effort overall.”
The Patriots (11-4) currently sit in the AFC's No.3 playoff spot, and host the Miami Dolphins for their final regular season game.
The Patriots will need a victory next Sunday as well as a loss by either the Denver Broncos or Houston Texans to clinch a first-round bye. If both the Texans, who play the Indianapolis Colts, and Broncos, who play the Kansas City Chiefs, lose the Patriots will clinch home-filed advantage throughout the playoffs.

Tom Brady was ticked off after the Patriots’ win against the Jaguars last Sunday. As he should have been — it was less a game than a poorly executed practice, with all facets of the team playing with a general malaise.
