Patriots coach Bill Belichick speaks out on loss to Ravens

The New England Patriots suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday night, as they were hammered by a score of 37-20 in their Week 9 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.

Afterward, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick did not have much to say.

“There’s really not much to say tonight,” Belichick said, according to Hayden Bird of The Boston Globe. “Obviously we didn’t do anything well enough to deserve to win.”

The Ravens held the ball for just over 14 minutes more than the Patriots and gashed them for 210 rushing yards. In addition, New England was penalized seven times, which is pretty uncharacteristic of the Pats.

“Give them credit, they were better than we were tonight,” Belichick said of Baltimore. “Certainly the better team.”

As for a potential playoff rematch between the two sides? Belichick isn’t looking that far down the road just yet.

“I don’t know. Right now they’re not on our schedule, so I’m not really worried about that,” he said.

Belichick being tight-lipped is hardly a surprise, as he is always reserved whether the Patriots win or lose, but there are certainly some adjustments New England needs to make if it ends up meeting the Ravens again in January.

Baltimore improved to 6-2 with the win, which was its fourth straight victory. The Ravens scored a pair of non-offensive touchdowns in the triumph, which proved to be a major difference-maker in the game.

The Patriots will take on the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday. Meanwhile, the Ravens will battle the Cincinnati Bengals.
