Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

In his weekly on Westwood One Radio on "Monday Night Football", Tom Brady said of Josh Gordon: "I hate to make projections and expectations. That's not fair. I've never met Josh personally, just like I hadn't met some of the guys that have come in the last couple of weeks. We'll see how it goes this week. Hopefully he can work hard and put the team first, and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team."

WR Phillip Dorsett ends with a smile when talking about Josh Gordon.

In his day-after-game conference call, Bill Belichick didn't seem to have any regret on the decision to punt on fourth-and-inches; the ball was on the Patriots' 18-yard line, there was 8:01 remaining, and the Patriots trailed by 11 points. Belichick cited the time remaining as one key factor in the decision, noting that he felt the Patriots would get at least two more possessions. He also liked the field position created on the punt, even though it wasn't covered as well as it could have been (16-yard return).

Bill Belichick: "We're better than what we showed yesterday, but that's what it was yesterday. So we have to work harder to improve it. That's what we'll do."

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Why did the Patriots take the football after winning the opening toss when they usually defer? One nugget that I picked up from the locker room after the game is that the thinking was to have the wind in their favor in the fourth quarter in case a game-winning kick was needed. There were gusts up to 25 miles per hour at TIAA Bank Stadium.
