A frustrated Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork wasn't in a mood for making excuses after the Pats blew a 13-point fourth-quarter lead Sunday and suffered a 24-23 loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.
"Didn't make enough plays, plain and simple," Wilfork said. "That's all I have. Didn't make enough plays. What else can you do? We lost and we're moving on. That's where it's at.
"We didn't make enough plays, plain and simple. Very frustrated. I'm not going to sit here and lie to you and say I'm not. I'm very frustrated. I don't know what else to say because I'll probably lose my head right now. We just didn't make enough plays when it counted, and it cost us."
The Patriots are 3-3 and in a four-way tie with the Bills, Jets and Dolphins in the AFC East, with the Jets up next Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
"Who knows? We're 3-3, plain and simple," Wilfork said. "There's not a magic wand. We're 3...
Patriots coach Bill Belichick offered a somber and stark analysis of his team's 24-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
"All the way across the board, everybody involved in the game, none of us did a good enough job," he said. "The result is what it was. It's just not good enough."
Belichick added, "Nothing we did today was good enough. On offense, defense, special teams, coaches, players, everybody involved in the game. It just wasn't good enough. We all made mistakes. We had our chances, we just didn't do a good enough job."
On the drive at the end of the first half that ended prematurely after Tom Brady was called for grounding leading to a 10-second run-off on the game clock, Belichick said he felt they had time to run a play and kick a field goal. It ultimately cost them at least three points.
"We just didn't play well the whole game today," Belichick said. 'It was the...
Rookie Russell Wilson connected for a 46-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice on a post pattern with 1:18 left in the fourth quarter as the Seahawks wiped out a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to stun the Patriots, 24-23, Sunday afternoon in the rain at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The Patriots fell to 3-3 and into a tie with the Dolphins, Bills and Jets in the AFC East.
Tom Brady completed 36 passes for 395 yards and two touchdowns and Wes Welker caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown as the Patriots blew a late lead. Brady had a rough second half, throwing a pair of interceptions while being called for his second intentional grounding of the game. Brady finished the game attempting a career high 58 passes.
Welker, who created a stir last Sunday night by saying he likes to "stick it" in the face of Bill Belichick, had another brilliant first half, catching seven passes on eight targets by Brady, gaining 102 yards and...
Following his team's 35-9 win over the Colts, Jets coach Rex Ryan said that he wasn't going to get into a war of words with the Patriots. At least not yet.
"I don't feel like tugging on Superman's cape today," Ryan told reporters. "Maybe tomorrow."
The Jets are now 3-3 heading into their showdown next Sunday with the Patriots in Foxboro. The Pats won both meetings last season.
