The New England Patriots are off and running in the 2018 NFL season.

The Patriots kicked off the new campaign on a high note with a hard-fought 27-20 victory over the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium.

As is customary after a victory, the Pats released some inside footage from the locker room following the game. The clip included a patented postgame message from head coach Belichick, as well as a team singing of “Happy Birthday” for Matthew Slater, who turned 33 on Sunday.

The Patriots will have their work cut out for them to make it back-to-back wins, as their first road game of the season will be an AFC Championship Game rematch against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
