Brady on trying to block: 'I can't do [expletive]'

Tom Brady might have come closer to missing Sunday’s game against the Jets than many originally surmised.

Appearing on his weekly interview with the Kirk & Callahan Show Monday morning, Brady clarified that his injured knee was touch and go heading into the final few days leading up to the game against the Jets.

“It’s better than last Monday, so I’m very happy about that,” said Brady, who missed two practices last week after originally injuring his leg during the Patriots’ loss to Seattle.

Asked if he expected to play all along, Brady added, “I think I’m pretty optimistic. Playing as long as I have,, you kind of deal with a lot of different things over the year and they’re all a little bit different. You want to go out there and you want to be productive and help the team win and if you don’t think you can do that you have to let your coaches know that. I felt like by the end...

Butler on Pats' defense: 'Our day is coming'

brightcove.createExperiences();

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — A lot of Patriots fans were wondering when the team’s defense would finally produce a turnover.

After all, it had been over a month since the last one.

Malcolm Butler produced it when he picked off Steelers quarterback Landry Jones in Pittsburgh on Oct. 23. Butler was again the spark in a key situation Sunday.

With the Patriots down, 10-3, and the Jets driving toward midfield, he punched the ball out of the hands of Robby Anderson at midfield after a 25-yard gain five minutes into the second quarter. Devin McCourty held up Anderson on the tackle while Butler did the dirty work. Butler also recovered the ball.

“We’ve been building. Our day is coming,” Butler said. “Today is one of those days. We want to continue to build on it and continue doing the right things to get the ball.”

Jets' Enunwa takes shot at fans over attendance

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Once again, Patriots fans were out in full force despite being on the road.

At times in the Patriots’ 22-17 win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium there were “Brady, Brady, Brady” chants heard and also loud cheers when the Patriots made big plays.

With the Jets falling to 3-8 on the year, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa would like there to be more of a homefield advantage.

“It’s tough, but I know as a fan, you know, it’s hard to support when your team is not playing the way you want them to,” he said when asked how he felt about the Tom Brady chants. “I don’t blame them, but at the same time it would be great if we could have more of our fans in our home stadium.”

Enunwa finished the game with five catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in the loss.
