You might remember a similar scenario last season after a loss to the lowly Cleveland Browns in Week 9. New England responded by running the table over the final eight games of the regular season.
So yes, the Patriots can handle adversity just fine. That's the point Brady made Monday morning during his weekly interview with WEEI-AM in Boston.
"We can sit here and worry about it and blame each other and listen to all the crap that's said about us, how much we suck and how much every player sucks, and then let that affect us next week," Brady said (via SportsRadioInterviews.com). "But we're not going to do that."
"We have an important game this week, and we have to be able to turn it around," Brady said. "That's the attitude that we take. It has served us well over the years. We're going to try to go out there and do a better job this week."
