After a second embarrassing house loss in as many weeks, heart David Andrews was the primary Patriot to talk as common, and he was visibly deflated on the rostrum Sunday.

“Wasn’t adequate,” Andrews stated succinctly. “Turnovers … Sort of the identical outdated story.

“I feel you’ve simply received to return to, beginning over. Return to the basics and preserve it within the easiest type. It’s robust. [We] put so much into it every week, and to go on the market and never put your greatest 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 during the last 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 stated. “Turning the ball over, issues like that, it simply sort of snowballs from there. We’ll take a look at it, appropriate it, and like I stated, come again to work and work as arduous as we are able to this week and attempt to put our greatest foot ahead.

“There’s nothing I can do standing up right here to vary what occurred on the market at this time. I had my likelihood, we had our likelihood, the one alternative we have now is tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday to try to appropriate it, and put our greatest sport on the market [next] Sunday.”

Andrews had his first likelihood to play alongside Riley Reiff, who made his Patriots debut filling in for Mike Onwenu after the beginning guard left the sport with an damage. It’s the newest reshuffle for an offensive line that’s altering each week.

“Admire Riley’s effort, getting again on the market,” Andrews stated. “Simply received to search out some continuity, shifting individuals round, simply received to get a set group and work collectively and play. However recognize his effort, his toughness getting back from his damage.”

The final query Andrews fielded was about his stage of perception in quarterback Mac Jones, who was benched for the second sport operating amid one other poor efficiency.

“I received perception in all people,” Andrews stated, diplomatically. “I received perception in the event that they’re on this soccer crew, they’re right here for a purpose, together with myself, together with all people in that locker room, we’re all right here for a purpose, we’re all right here for a goal. We’ve simply received to go on the market, do a greater job as a soccer crew total, we’ve received to do a greater job serving to him, all people’s received to do a greater job.”

That was all for Andrews, who lower his post-game presser quick there.

“That’s all I’ve received,” he stated with out taking any additional questions, “thanks guys.”
