After Washington cornerback Josh Wilson intercepted a Tom Brady pass in the end zone in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, cameras caught the New England quarterback arguing with his offensive coordinator.
Brady and Bill O’Brien were spotted in a heated exchange on the sidelines and Patriots Coach Bill Belichick eventually had to step between the two.
“I threw a pretty bad interception, so he wasn’t happy about it,” Brady said. “A long line of coaches and players are pretty pissed at me after that, but Billy got to me first so I deserved it.
“We’re both pretty emotional guys so that’s what I deserve, you know?” he continued. “If you make bad plays, you are supposed to get yelled at by your coaches. This is not the first time and probably won’t be the last. It was just, you can’t do that in that situation and it was just a stupid play by me.”
Shortly after the dust-up, Brady and O’Brien could be seen seated next to each other on the New England bench.
“I think this was a real competitive game, and we have a lot of competitive players on this team,” Belichick said.
