The Patriots got off to a sluggish start Sunday night against the Texans. Tom Brady tried to get some of his teammates to pick up the pace by airing them out on the sideline.
An NBC camera picked up Brady telling his receivers (Phillip Dorsett and Julian Edelman were shown on screen) to be "faster, quicker, more explosive" after another empty New England drive in the first half.

The rest of the lip-reading is up to you.
Brady finished the half with 7-of-19 passing for 82 yards and an interception. Jakobi Meyers was the leading receiver with 25 yards. The reigning Super Bowl champs were trailing 14-3 at the break.
PATRIOTS VS. TEXANS: Live updates, highlights
New England was hit by a teamwide illness during the week, a situation that required altered travel plans, but obviously that can't be used as an excuse.
The offense has just been sickly against a Texans defense that's feeling great.
