FOXBORO -- The Patriots beat the Texans, 27-20 in Week 1 of the regular season and Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes, but listening to him speak after the game you would never know as he didn't sound pleased with how things went.

"I don’t think we played anywhere near what our capabilities are," Brady said. "I think it’s good to win, obviously, but we’ve got to do a lot better than that I think. Just turning the ball over and not taking advantage of some opportunities that we had out there, all of us probably look at the game and realize we could have done a lot of things differently."

The 41-year-old finished the game 26-for-39 passing with 277 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. 

New England only managed two field goals in the second half, and overall were just 4-for-14 on third down.

"Didn’t get into the rhythm that we probably would have liked to get into, but made enough plays and [we have] got to eliminate turnovers," Brady said. "[We have] Got to do basically everything better, but it’s still great to get a win and be 1-0."

Brady and the Patriots will now prepare to face Jacksonville next Sunday in a rematch of last year's AFC championship.
