In today’s news blitz, two members of the Patriots offense comment on the New York Jets' defense following Sunday’s loss. Also, red zone trouble played a major role and find out which mental mistake the team must improve on.

QB Tom Bradywas under constant pressure in Sunday's defeat, much like the Jets promised they would do. In a game that featured no touchdowns from the offense, Brady offered credit to the Jets defense according to the Boston Globe. "It's a good blitz team,'' said Brady. "They get there and they get home and there's tight coverage. We were trying to get a guy on a guy, and sometimes they came free, just scheme-wise, which is tough because it forces you to throw the ball a little earlier."

WR Randy Moss, who was limited to only four receptions, praised Rex Ryan's defensive schemes according to the Boston Globe. "As a whole offensive unit we just didn't make things happen, so you have to give credit. That's the biggest thing, you have to tip your hats to them. They played a [heck] of a game."

The *Boston Herald *reports the Patriots had 11 penalties for 89 yards including consecutive delay-of-game penalties in the third quarter alone. Read Tom Brady’s comments here on the issue.

The Boston Globe reports one bright spot came from Patriots rookie WR Julian Edelman. After no playing time in the season opener against the Bills, Edelman filled in for an inactive Wes Welker with a team-high eight receptions for 98 yards. "He came in and did a good job,'' said tight end Chris Baker. “He is Wes’s Mini-me, as we call him. He is a lot like him and does a lot of things that he does. He came in and played well for us in his first real NFL game, so hopefully he can build on that."

According to SI.Com, Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick focused on three plays contributing to the loss. Find out the three plays Belichick is referring to.
