    Adam Thielen to “shut the f–k up” in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game when Thielen took issue with Patriots safety Patrick Chung staying down at the end of a Latavius Murray first down run while the Patriots mulled challenging the spot.It was an exchange that was familiar to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady , who said he’s been in Thielen’s spot before and got a laugh out of watching things play out during Sunday’s game.“I’ve been on the other end of that a few times in my career,” Brady said on WEEI. “Pretty funny. … It’s competitive out there. It’s very feisty and everyone’s emotions are on their sleeves. You say something and there is just an emotional reaction. That was pretty funny.”It’s easier to laugh at such moments when you’re putting the finishing touches on a win and Brady credited “a great performance” by the defense against Thielen and everyone else in purple with making that happen. The Chiefs defense was not the strong suit of the team through the regular season, but they came up with a big effort against the Colts in Saturday’s 31-13 win.Linebacker Justin Houston was in the center of that effort. Houston had two sacks , batted down a pass and recovered a fumble forced by Dee Ford a couple of plays after a Sammy Watkins fumble gave Indianapolis the ball in the red zone. Getting the ball back was called an “attitude play” by coach Andy Reid because “it motivates everyone” and Houston said after the game that he thinks the team can do even better in the future.“I’ve been on the field with great units,” Houston said, via the . “I think we’re just jelling together … and the best is yet to come. … We were communicating , and playing together. Once you get that done, with everybody on the same page, the sky is the limit.”The unit will get a chance to show that they have more to offer in the AFC Championship Game next Sunday and they’ll learn which offense they are tasked with stopping in a few hours.
