Here is how Tom Brady, during his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI, described his 16-snap workload in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans: "I didn't play a ton, but certainly played enough to get out there and kind of feel what the rhythm of the game is like. It's always good in the preseason to be able to do that. So I was glad we got a chance to go down and score and hopefully we can build on it this week."

Patriots coach Bill Belichick's post-game news conference ended with a question on if there was a feeling of nostalgia returning to NRG Stadium, the site of Super Bowl LI. "That's all in the past," he responded. "I mean, it was great, but we're on to 2017. I don't think last year, two years ago or 12 years ago is that important. Trying to get this team ready to go, and this year's team is this year's team. It's my responsibility to make a strong commitment to this group. I'm not trying to live in the past. I'm not trying to live in the future. I'm just trying to do a good job with the team we have today."
