After a second embarrassing house loss in as many weeks, heart David Andrews was the primary Patriot to talk as regular, and he was visibly deflated on the rostrum Sunday.
“Wasn’t ok,” Andrews mentioned succinctly. “Turnovers … Sort of the identical outdated story.
“I believe you’ve simply acquired to return to, beginning over. Return to the basics and hold it within the easiest kind. It’s robust. [We] put loads into it every week, and to go on the market and never put your finest foot ahead on Sunday is hard. Going to come back in, get again to work, that’s all I actually know [how] to do.”
The Patriots have been outscored 72-3 over the past two video games, and have been outscored 22-3 over their final 31 offensive drives. Opposing defenses have scored three touchdowns, and the Patriots have scored none, turning the ball over time and time once more within the course of.
“It’s extra of execution,” Andrews mentioned. “Turning the ball over, issues like that, it simply form of snowballs from there. We’ll have a look at it, right it, and like I mentioned, come again to work and work as arduous as we will this week and attempt to put our greatest foot ahead.
“There’s nothing I can do standing up right here to alter what occurred on the market right now. I had my probability, we had our probability, the one alternative we’ve is tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday to attempt to right it, and put our greatest sport on the market [next] Sunday.”
Andrews had his first probability to play alongside Riley Reiff, who made his Patriots debut filling in for Mike Onwenu after the beginning guard left the sport with an harm. It’s the most recent reshuffle for an offensive line that’s altering each week.
“Recognize Riley’s effort, getting again on the market,” Andrews mentioned. “Simply acquired to search out some continuity, shifting individuals round, simply acquired to get a set group and work collectively and play. However recognize his effort, his toughness getting back from his harm.”
The final query Andrews fielded was about his degree of perception in quarterback Mac Jones, who was benched for the second sport operating amid one other poor efficiency.
“I acquired perception in everyone,” Andrews mentioned, diplomatically. “I acquired perception in the event that they’re on this soccer group, they’re right here for a purpose, together with myself, together with everyone in that locker room, we’re all right here for a purpose, we’re all right here for a goal. We’ve simply acquired to go on the market, do a greater job as a soccer group total, we’ve acquired to do a greater job serving to him, everyone’s acquired to do a greater job.”
That was all for Andrews, who reduce his post-game presser brief there.
“That’s all I’ve acquired,” he mentioned with out taking any additional questions, “thanks guys.”
