Brady said: "He made some big ones, made a lot of big ones".
"When Tyreek was running to score, I said, good". He'll add one more on Sunday night, courtesy of Las Vegas oddsmakers. Not that anyone was surprised.
The Patriots finished the game without punting and were not charged with a penalty. "I saw one TV shot of it". Mahomes was a bit off target with his first-half passing. "Great win. I'm really happy we won". Instead, one of the most disciplined teams in the league left the NFL's most explosive playmaker wide open deep down the field. Chris Hogan came down with a 42-yard bomb from Brady, a throw that sucked most of Gillette Stadium into breathless silence as the ball was in the air. I've hit him on that a bunch over the last two-and-a-half years. "We practice these things. You know, still some growing pains and stuff like that you've got to work out at practice", Gordon said.
Tom Brady has set plenty of records in his illustrious career. Finally, the quarterback chose to take care of business himself and took off. Brady was hit as he crossed the goal line, but hung on to the ball, scoring a 4-yard touchdown to make it, 37-33 Patriots. "That's what he's going to do for this team - sacrifice it all for this team".More news: Lukaku hints at possible move to Serie A champions Juventus

"Yeah, you know, we had confidence [on the final drive]", Brady said after the game. "Those plays are when we want to run down, tackle and make a play but Hill is a tough guy to run down".
Brady's theatrics weren't over.
Brady and Mahomes wished each other well at midfield after Stephen Gostkowski's 28-yard field goal decided the game. Probably not. But you can bet plays like Tyreek Hill's 75-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter will not happen. Duron Harmon could be seen chasing the receiver on that play. The best quarterback of all time. "We're going to work at it every day, try to get better, and I have no doubt we'll be on the same page as the season goes". On Sony Michel's first touchdown, a 4-yarder in the first quarter, Gronkowski sealed linebacker Frank Zombo, allowing the running back a free path into the end zone. That's why he was confident. "Stick together as a team, as an offense, take control of the game, melt some of the clock away and finish it off".
Defensive back Devin McCourty on Mahomes and Hill: "He is a good player". "He was always big on finishing the game. He's playing for 60 minutes and playing four quarterbacks of football and keeping our foot on the gas". Next, Brady took over. New England's balanced attack could erupt at home against the NFL's 32nd-ranked defense.
"He made a lot of big [throws]", Brady said.
