Matt Judon: We’re not getting down on ourselves

After last week’s loss to the Buccaneers, the Patriots are now 1-3.

But edge rusher Matt Judon said Thursday that he thinks the team’s energy is still high entering Week Five.

We’re not getting down on ourselves,” Judon said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “We’re getting right after it. We know what our record is but we know what we have in that locker room. We have 13 more games. We can win all the next 13. You can’t get down on yourself like that.”

Judon has been one of the Patriots’ best performers, recording 4.5 sacks, six tackles for loss, and eight total QB hits through four games. Judon’s career-high in sacks is 9.5, which he reached in 2019 with Baltimore.

Fortunately for the Patriots, they have an opportunity for a get-right game against the Texans this week. New England will be on the road, but Houston didn’t look capable of beating many teams regardless of venue last week.

  1. Win all 13 games? While it is possible I guess, there is a higher probability of winning the powerball and getting hit by lightning on the same day

  2. Well,your over spent on bad free agents and your team is in cap hell. Yeah, you guys are done.

  3. They don’t have a tough schedule this year. I’m not writing them off for a playoff push. We’ll have to see if they can beat anyone better than the Jets. I’m betting they can. I’m betting they’ll win a lot of close games this year.

  4. I like this Judon guy. He plays hard and has a great attitude. Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith and Nelson Agholor seem to be improving, and Mac Jones looks better than I expected from a raw rookie. We’ll see, but I’m sure not writing them off as a playoff team.

  5. A lot new pieces on offense that take time to gel. They will finish the season strong and I expect a deep playoff run next year.
