The New England Patriots made a statement to the rest of the NFL in Week 1 with a convincing victory over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium.
The defending Super Bowl champions crushed the Steelers in all three phases of the game to earn a 33-3 win.
The Patriots tweeted a video Wednesday with great behind-the-scenes footage of their Week 1 triumph. One of the scenes shows quarterback Tom Brady telling rookie wide receivers Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski to "have some fun" because "you only get one first game." Another scene shows Patriots safety Devin McCourty giving his defensive teammates an inspiring pre-game speech.
Check out the entire video in the tweet below:
"We've been waiting a long time.
We're focused on everything we've put in since April. For this day.
This day is that day."
