Following last week’s AFC Championship win against the Baltimore Ravens, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady promised team owner Robert Kraft that he would do better in the Super Bowl, according to the Boston Herald.

Brady explained his promise to the paper yesterday.

“I’m always trying to play better,” Brady said with a smile. “Every player on this team is trying to play better every week. I’m glad we won that game; glad we’re sitting in this position now. I think a lot of guys played really well and that’s what it is going to take again this week. I always have private conversations with Mr. Kraft but they’re supposed to be private but I guess they’re not.”

In last week’s 23-20 victory, Brady threw for 239 yards while completing 61.1% of his passes. The Pro Bowler gave up two interceptions and, for the first time all season, failed to throw a touchdown pass. This will be Brady’s fifth Super Bowl appearance. He has been named the Super Bowl MVP twice previously.
