Tom Brady credits Ravens: ‘They earned it’

FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots failed to execute and string enough good plays together to beat the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, quarterback Tom Brady said.

“We just couldn’t make any critical plays when we needed to,” Brady said. “We got behind in the second half there and became one-dimensional. We just couldn’t string enough good plays together to get into the end zone.”

Brady was 29 of 54 passing for 320 yards, a touchdown and two picks. He had several miscues in the game, including a late interception that sealed the win for Baltimore.

“Whatever we did, we didn’t execute very well,” Brady said. “The name of the game is execution. And when you don’t execute against a good team, you don’t come up on the winning end.”

Brady lamented the loss, giving all the credit to the Ravens for playing a tough game.

“You have the opportunity to win the game,” Brady said of the Patriots’ missed chances. “But we came up short. There’s frustration in that. But they’re not gonna give it to you. They earned it. They played a good game.”

Added Brady: “[The season] always comes to a screeching halt. There’s only two teams at the dance, and those two teams deserve it. We’ve lost before and it takes awhile to get over it.”
