Patriots coach Bill Belichick joined Dale & Holley with Keefe Monday to discuss Sunday's win over the Jets and to look ahead to next week's game against the Falcons. To hear the complete interview, visit the Dale & Holley with Keefe audio on demand page.

Belichick gave a brief update on Harvey Langi and his wife Cassidy following them being in a severe car accident Friday night. 

According to Rick Wahlin, Langi's father-in-law, he is being treated for neck and head injuries, while his wife suffered fractures to both hips, broken ribs and is being evaluated for possible internal bleeding and injury to her liver and spleen. 

“We heard about it after it happened and it obviously was a very unfortunate situation," Belichick said. "I think they are doing better. Serious, but not life-threatening. Probably will take a little time before either one of them are back to normal, but they both are making progress. Hopefully will be released soon from the hospital.”

Belichick also touched on few things from the 24-17 win over the Jets to put the team in first place in the division.

On Jonathan Bademosi: “Bademosi did a great job for us. He played 72 plays on defense, 14 in the kicking game. Really didn’t know he was going to play until Saturday -- defensively, to have a big role like that. It says a lot for his preparation. He came through for us. I thought he played well, tackled well. He stepped in and really did a great job.”

On what was the turning point: “The key point in the game was before the half. It’s 14-7, we go down there with under two minutes to go and get into scoring position and miss the field goal. Now their drive, and we get the interception from Malcolm [Butler] and we get the first down, hit a long pass to [Brandin] Cooks, score to Rob [Gronkowski] with six seconds to go in the half or whatever it was. Take the second half kickoff and drive it down. So the game goes from 14-7 to 21-14 and the Jets never really had the ball. I mean they kneeled on it, but they didn’t really have the ball. I thought that whole sequence, it was a big swing and it was a little bit of a back and forth. It looked like we were going to get a field goal, it looked like they were moving into field goal range and we had the interception, and probably looked like we had a shot at a field goal, but the big pass to Cooks gave us an opportunity for a touchdown. Then the second half possession added seven to that. That was a big swing because we were behind the whole first quarter and then basically ahead the whole second half, which is kind of unusual.”
