PATRIOTS HEAD COACH BILL BELICHICK
*On his overall thoughts about the game:
*"They're a real good football team. They've got a lot of talented players, and I thought our guys hung in and battled pretty well here on the road. We had some other guys playing at the end of the game. It's good to see us make enough plays to win. I thought Patrick [Chung] made a nice play on the punt return, and we were able to get them stopped there on third down and kick a field goal. It was a good, competitive game on the road. That's what we needed. We certainly have a lot of things to build on here and corrections we need to make, but overall I was pleased with the effort we put out there and with the competitiveness of the game."
*On the health of Patriots QB Tom Brady:
*"I'm sure he has some bumps and bruises like everybody else that played in the game."
*On the play of the Patriots offense:
*"I thought our team played competitively. We did some good things. They're a good defensive team, and they gave us some problems. I thought Tom handled himself well - as most of the offense did."
*On his team's game plan heading into tonight:
*"It wasn't a big game plan game. The thought was to go out there and try to compete against them, and I thought we did that."
*On the interception by Patriots CB Jonathan Wilhite:
*"It looked like Jonathan [Wilhite] cut the route. He got a good block from [Richard] Seymour on the quarterback and took it back about 95 or 100 yards."
PATRIOTS CORNERBACK JONATHAN WILHITE
*On how he read the interception play: *
"I didn't see anything. All I knew was looking at the replay, that our D-line had a great rush on the play. I was just in my zone, I made a play."
*On his return touchdown: *
"I got some good blocks on the run; and six points."
