Brandon Browner: 'no sleep tonight!'

Browner walked into the locker room after the game, fired up as could be, went around to every interview booth and said something to each teammate being interviewed.
As Danny Amendola was wrapping up an interview, Browner embraced him and called him one of the toughest receivers in the league. Browner then sat down and said "no sleep tonight!" He would repeat this multiple times before he started his interview with media members.
More from Steve Silva of Boston.com:
A reporter asked Browner how special this win was with all the adversity the Patriots have gone through recently.
“What do you think we have been through? You say it like we’ve been through something bad," Browner said. "We won a playoff game two weeks ago. We won a Super Bowl this week. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.”
Browner, known best for his physical style of play, was the subject of some scrutiny leading up to the game as he said in an interview with ESPN that he wanted his teammates to target the injuries of multiple Seahawks players.
Then as the game was ending, Browner got into the face of Seahawks corner back Richard Sherman. No word on what was said.
He was just one of many Patriots who were up late after the thrilling Super Bowl win over the Seattle Seahawks, as many players were up as late as 4 a.m. pacific time. Rob Gronkowski went on Jimmy Kimmel's show and said he was only working on two hours of sleep. But I doubt any of the players or coaches care how much sleep they got.
This victory is extra special for Browner. A former Seahawk just a year ago, Browner did not participate in his former team's dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
