The New England Patriots likely didn’t need any motivation last Sunday, but Tom Brady got his guys fired up just in case.
NFL Films on Thursday released a video of running back James White mic’d up during the Patriots’ Week 13 win over the Minnesota Vikings. But the first soundbite of the video comes from Brady, who had a few words for the offense before the gamed kicked off.
You can check out Brady’s message, as well as highlights from White in the video below:
Whether it was Brady’s pump-up speech or the magnitude of the game itself, the Patriots certainly came to play. The veteran signal-caller completed 24 of 32 passes for 311 yards with a touchdown, while New England as a team ran for 160 yards — the most the Vikings have allowed in a game this season. The Patriots’ defense answered the bell as well, limiting a potent Minnesota offense to just 10 points.
New England will try to keep it going Sunday afternoon when it pays a visit to the Miami Dolphins for a Week 14 tilt.
