The New England Patriots blew a golden opportunity in their 24-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Not only did the Patriots have a chance to clinch the AFC East and likely keep the Dolphins out of the postseason, but with the Denver Broncos loss to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday night, the Patriots could have remained in the driver’s seat for homefield advantage in the postseason.

“Our margin of error is very slim,” Brady said Monday morning on Boston sports radio station WEEI via ESPN Boston. “We can’t make any mistakes or give them any opportunities. If we have plays that are there to be made, then I’ve got to throw it and hit it. We’ve got to come up with them.”

Brady believes the whole team needs to do a better job.

“Everyone up and down the roster has to do a better job, because, like I said, by no means are we running away from any team that we’re playing; we haven’t done it all year,” Brady explained. “We just haven’t played well enough consistently to do that. If you’re going to get in these games every week, then when we have opportunities to do it, we’ve got to take advantage.”

The Patriots will travel to Baltimore to take on the rival Ravens Sunday afternoon.
