Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spoke to the media on Monday during his weekly phone conference.
He talked about the defense and how they graded out dealing with Tyrod Taylor.
“When he got out of the pocket, it didn’t grade out very well at all,” Belichick said. “We didn’t do a good job. I’m not even talking about the designed plays where there are bootlegs and things like that. The plays where he dropped back and we kept him in the pocket, we did a lot better than when he got out, whether it was him running or him extending the play and then throwing the ball to somebody that we either didn’t cover or dropped our coverage on or didn’t match up properly or whatever. That’s the responsibility of the rushers to not let those plays get extended, and it’s the responsibility of the players in coverage to finish the play. There is no time limit on those, and we knew that was going to be a part of the game. Some of it we handled well – we had turnovers and we hit the quarterback. Some if it we didn’t handle well and they made plays. It was a little bit of both.”
