FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady isn’t shy about letting his teammates know when they’re not playing well.
That certainly was the case in the first half Monday night.
The Patriots had scored just three points on 81 total yards of offense through the midway point of the second quarter against the Buffalo Bills. For a New England team that entered the game with the NFL’s highest-scoring offense, that’s not ideal.
After a particularly disappointing drive, Brady had had enough, and ESPN’s cameras captured the Patriots quarterback chewing out his offensive line on the sideline.
Warning: If you’re any good at lip-reading, this video contains explicit language.
We won’t transcribe all the obscenities Brady threw out here, but he appeared at one point to shout “Let’s have some (expletive) pride!”
New England’s offense clearly is suffering without the presence of wide receiver Julian Edelman, and it appears Brady has taken it upon himself to will the unit to produce.
