The Patriots held on to beat the Bills 37-31 thanks to a last minute interception from Devin McCourty as the Bills attempted to take the lead.
Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe joined 98.5 the Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss the Patriots defense, Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib.
The guys started off discussing the Patriots defense this year. Everyone thought that this year’s defense was suppose to be better than last year. Where is this defense?
“I do think it’s a little bit better, you see it sometimes. This really is, I’ve covered for seven years and it’s the most confounding team that I’ve covered because some days they look fantastic on both sides of the ball.”
The Bills were complaining about Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes saying he’s dirty or playing close to that edge. What Shalise’s opinion of the complaints about Spikes?
“I think they have in this particular case I think they have a valid argument because remember when they played in Buffalo Brandon Spikes had that devastating sideline hit on the Devin McCourty interception return and knock one of their players out of the game. And he did it again yesterday and almost knocked Ryan Fitzpatrick out of the game.”
Plus will the addition of Aqib Talib help this secondary moving forward? Can they do anything to fix this Patriots defense?
