Bill Belichick: ‘A Lot Of Work To Do’ After Biggest Defeat

The New England Patriots’ 38-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday was the biggest defeat of Bill Belichick’s career.

It was a poor night for both Bill Belichick and Mac Jones, who he took off in the third quarter. Mac Jones had 14-of-30 passes for 150 yards, two interceptions and a 39.9 passer rating.

“There was no point in leaving him out there,” Bill Belichick said. “I said there was no point in leaving him out there, so I took him out.”

“Just focus on the basic fundamentals of football,” Jones told reporters after when asked how he plans to get back on track. 

“It really just wasn’t a great day. I’m not going to let it carry over to the next week. It’s going to be done after I watch the film. Definitely disappointed, but at the end of the day, I’m going to keep grinding. And hopefully the guys will come with me. It’s hard, right, for me to sit up here and say that. I’m very disappointed in myself, but I’ve got to bounce back.”

The result leaves New England on a 1-3 record to start the season. Belichick had no magic answer worthy of the biggest loss of his coaching career for the press afterwards.

“We obviously didn’t do much of anything well enough to be competitive tonight,” Belichick said. 

“So, disappointing. Think we’re a lot better team than what we showed out there tonight, but that’s what we showed. That’s what it was. Got a lot of work to do. Got to do a better job playing, coaching. Just got to perform better.”
