During his conference call on Monday morning, New England head coach Bill Belichick had this to say about the Browns and the way they played on Sunday-
“Cleveland did a good job. They outcoached us and outplayed us in every area. Fortunately we were able to make some plays at the end, play some good situational football and be able to come back and score pretty quickly at the end of the game where a lot of things had to go right.”
The Patriots will be without TE Rob Gronkowski for the rest of the season. Tests revealed a torn ACL and MCL for Gronkowski after a hit yesterday involving Browns safety T.J. Ward. Ward was not flagged for the hit, and said after the game that he went low in part due to the league’s mandates and fines for hitting players high.
