Brandon Manumaleuna: I need to watch the film first and see. I can't really say.

BM: We're just getting different looks from different defenses. Each week there's a new wrinkle on the defensive side. We've just got to adjust to it.
ML: How do you get the offense back on track against a New England Patriots team that has a very talented defensive front seven?
BM: We've just got to go this week and prepare even better than we did last week.
ML: Is there extra motivation for the offense to perform well next week after the poor performance in Miami?
BM: No game serves as more motivation than the other. It's an AFC opponent and it all counts towards the playoffs. We're trying to get these wins so we can try to get into the playoffs.
