Brady's attempt at a game-winning touchdown pass to tight end
Brady, who shouted at referee Clete Blakeman as he jogged off the field after the game, later pointed the finger at himself.
"It wasn't a great throw. No excuses," Brady said, according to the Boston Herald. "It should have been a better throw."
Until the last-play interception, Brady had been having a standout night for the Patriots, completing 25 of his first 29 pass attempts. He finished the game connecting on 29 of 40 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown.
However, mistakes on both sides of the ball by the Patriots coupled with a strong effort by Carolina quarterback
"I wish it wouldn't have come down to that," Brady said about the final play. "I think there are plenty of plays we could have made. But it did, and they are going to make a call or they are not going to make a call. We can play better than that."
