The New England Patriots lost their second game of the regular season on Sunday night, falling to the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium, 28-22.
Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense struggled for most of the game. A sideline clip showed Brady going off on his wide receivers.
“Listen up,” Brady told his wide receivers during the game. “We gotta be faster, quicker, more explosive. Everything.”

New England will face another tough team this Sunday, when the Patriots host the Chiefs in Foxborough.
