Brady was mic’d up for win over Saints

NFL.com is providing an inside look at New England’s 30-27 win over the New Orleans Saints Sunday. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was mic’d up during that game, giving fans a glimpse of Brady’s demeanor when the Patriots were down and during their incredible comeback.

In the video, Brady tried to give his wide receivers a shot of confidence before the game.

“This group here is going to be why we win right here,” said Brady. “Let’s play our best. We’ve been putting it in the tank, you know what I’m saying? Let’s pull something out today, you know what I’m saying? Let’s all go play our best, we’ll have some fun, we’ll beat up on these boys.”

After being sacked, Brady walks off the field in disgust.

“Come on now,” Brady says. From the bench, he adds, “We’ve gotta do better, O.”

The highlight of the video, of course, is Brady’s reaction on the game’s final touchdown, which Brady threw to rookie Kenbrell Thompkins. Getting the ball back with just over a minute to play, Brady led the team down the field for the winning score.

“We got you,” says Thompkins, to which Brady replies, “Way to go.”
