That is exactly what took place. "I mean, football's a team sport".
"It's like starting all over from scratch", he said after the victory.
"We don't know who we're going to play (in the divisional round)".
While the Patriots now hold the number one seed in the AFC, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the same record and could overtake them in week 17 with a Pats loss to the New York Jets and a Steelers win over the Cleveland Browns.
Belichick said there was nothing brought up about the No. 1 seed this week. They're pros, of course, but going nearly three full weeks without playing and then having to step into the biggest game of the year is not always easy.
New England's postseason quest for a sixth title kicks off at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night, January 13, at 8:15 versus the lowest remaining seed (Bills, Titans or Chiefs) from this upcoming AFC wildcard weekend. Following their hot start to the game, superstar quarterback Tom Brady finished with just 190 yards and two touchdowns.
Over the last 23 years, the Patriots are 42-10 in games in which the temperature is 34° or below. "We hated every part of being out there, but I think everybody came out today and was like, 'This isn't as bad as Thursday practice". "But it was great to get a win".
The last time the Jets and the Patriots met this season, it looked like a potential upset until Brady and co. were able to mount a late-game comeback. He showed that he still had it, with his first game in New England.
On New Year's Eve, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson came down with a would-be catch out of bounds and, likely frustrated by the limitations of the man doling out passes from under center, hucked the rock into the ground. We have a few pieces here and there that we will assess in the offseason, and you kind of go from there. I thought he did better than the past two weeks. Still, New York had a mere 40 yards on the ground and Bryce Petty had just 232 yards through the air.
Amendola caught four passes on four targets for 43 yards, including back-to-back receptions on third-and-13 and fourth-and-2 to extend the drive. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is expected to be inactive for the third straight game. Here are the Week 17 New England Patriots takeaways. Las Vegas gave NY historically poor odds of reaching the Super Bowl. "In those situations, it's hard to convert". Each day that it went it got better. The count was just four shy of the 38 snaps Harrison saw all season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Newly signed James Harrison made his debut on the second defensive series of the game for the Patriots and has registered one tackle thus far in his team debut.
"Mom wasn't happy", Adams said after the game. "We're not going to know that until the weekend", said coach Belichick on Sunday. The Ravens had fought back to take a three-point lead over the Bengals in the fourth quarter. Tailback Dion Lewis was productive, and the New England defense took advantage of the deficiencies of Jets quarterback Bryce Petty and the NY offense.
Lewis, who finished with a season-high 26 carries for 93 yards, went in for a three-yard TD run on the opening possession, while in the second quarter Brady hit Brandin Cooks and Lewis each for five-yard scores to make it 21-3 at half-time. It was 13 degrees at kickoff with a windchill that made it feel like minus-1. The Patriots passed out 65,000 hand warmers to fans before the game. He played quite a bit in the preseason, then seemed buried behind James White, Rex Burkhead, and Mike Gillislee when the real games began.
Matt Forte's season is over.
It sure appears as if Muhammad Wilkerson's time with the Jets is over.
