Tom Brady and the New England Patriots aren't used to struggling as much as they have recently. The team has lost three of its last five games, with the most recent defeat coming at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.

During the game, it seemed that Brady's frustrations boiled over when he got into the face of Chiefs' defensive lineman Chris Jones.

Brady was a guest on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" on Monday and explained what went down.

"We were going at it for a little bit. He was pretty talkative out there, so I think there's a healthy rivalry," Brady said.

The Chiefs knocked the Patriots out of the playoffs last postseason, so it seems there may indeed be a rivalry brewing between the two squads.


"I typically don't try to make the d-linemen any more angry than they probably already are with me, because they're the ones that get paid to hit me," Brady continued. "So, I don't really give them any incentive typically, but I couldn't really resist at certain points."

Fans had some opinions of their own on the whole incident.

"Jones wishes he’s even 1% as nice as @TomBrady. Pretty sure, Tom is going to have the last laugh in few weeks," one Pats fan said.

"Reminds me of that scene in Dazed and Confused where the nerd tries to look tough throwing a punch at a bully because he said people usually step in to break it up before it gets out of hand," another wrote.

"Never have I ever seen someone act this cowardly on the football field. Tom Brady was talking stuff and confronted Chris Jones then walked right off. I guess he can't handle being in the presence of Sack Nation's leader," a Chiefs fan commented.

Brady addressed his team's struggles after the loss on Sunday. "Well, we've just got to go out and try to play better and try to win next week's game," Brady said. "Disappointing, but not going to feel sorry for ourselves. Try to go back to work and do a better job."

New England takes on the worst team in the NFL -- the Cincinnati Bengals -- this week, so that should help them get back on track.
