The vibe was pretty good inside the Patriots locker room late Sunday night.
New England rattled off 14 unanswered fourth-quarter points in a 31-17 Week 9 victory over the Green Bay Packers, earning the Patriots their sixth straight victory as they continue to look like a runaway train.
As always is the case when the Pats get a win, cameras were rolling inside the locker room as players trickled in and celebrated. This week, the footage showed Patriots owner Robert Kraft giving some love to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and wide receiver Josh Gordon, as well as Bill Belichick’s and Matthew Slater’s messages for the team.
During the nearly one minute video, however, you also can see quarterback Tom Brady heaping praise onto Gordon and Cordarrelle Patterson.
Gordon finished the night with five receptions for 130 yards with a touchdown. Patterson, who has been used as a running back the past two games, logged 11 carries for 61 yards and a score in addition to catching one pass for seven yards.
The Patriots are a wagon right now and show no signs of stopping, so it’s not surprising the energy is high in Foxboro.
