New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed his team after they beat the Houston Texans, 25-22, in Week 5 on Sunday. Here’s what he said to the players in the locker room.

“All right, that’s the way to keep fighting, OK? We needed 60 minutes of good football, and we got 30. That’s what we said at halftime. We got the 30 we needed,” Belichick said in the celebratory postgame locker room, in a video released by the Patriots. “Big plays all around. The blocked punt — that was a big play. That really changed the momentum. Defensively, after the touchdown to start the third quarter, we shut them down. Offensively, how about this offensive line? Let’s get some rest. Let’s get ready to go.”

The Patriots’ win may have been ugly. It may have come over an unimpressive Texans team. But Belichick seemed pleased.
