The New England Patriots are still lamenting their lost opportunities on offense – particularly at the goal line – in Sunday's setback against the San Diego Chargers.

The team is also coming to grips with the fact Tom Bradywon't be back this season and is prepared to deal with the critics in the aftermath of Sunday's blowout loss.

"We can't harp on it. This year is totally different from last year," safety Rodney Harrisontold the Boston Herald.

Nonetheless, the Patriots are offering no excuses for the loss, regardless of the fact they spent the entire week in California preparing for the game rather than returning home following their win over San Francisco in Week 5.

With an extra day of preparation this week in anticipation for Monday's game against the Broncos, the Patriots will try to assess what went wrong against San Diego.
