Tom Brady wants to see more urgency from Patriots

Tennessee scored on the first possession of the game and it was really all downhill from there, as the Patriots offense couldn't get anything going in its 34-10 loss to the Titans.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Tom Brady noted he would like to see more urgency from the team.

"Today, we just played a bad game," he said. "You see what happens. Hopefully there’s more urgency as we go forward. Our whole season is ahead of us. We’ll see what we do with it."

Brady has used the word before, but usually it is earlier in the season -- not after Week 10.

“They did a good job," he said of the Titans. "They executed well. Obviously, we didn’t. It was just a bad day for all of us. Have to learn from it and give them a lot of credit. They made a lot of plays. Kind of played from ahead. It was right where they wanted to be. We just couldn’t do enough early offensively to put any pressure on them. It was really no pressure on them all day, really.”

Brady added: “We made some big plays. We had chunks. We just didn’t sustain anything. It was make a big play, then go backwards. Make a big play, go backwards. You are just not able to sustain those things. You’re just fighting up hill all day and that is what we did.”

The Patriots will now enter their bye week on a sour note, but are 7-3 on the year.

“I am sure the coaches will do a lot of self-scout. I think as players we have to do the same thing," Brady said. "It was tough to lose this game, but hopefully we learn from it. All of these games are a little bit different. Every one that you play all year is going to be a little bit different and the ones we are going to play are going to be a little bit different. Winning football takes a lot of things. It takes a lot of good performances by a lot of people. Losing football is the exact opposite of that. Not that we do this, but in the NFL it is hard to win and you can’t just expect to show up and win. That doesn’t give the other team enough credit."
