Patriots Post-Game Chat: Presented By Xfinity

Join us to talk Patriots following the team's 24-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. We're starting at 7:45 PM ET and running for 30 minutes.


Patriots Collapse Against Seahawks, Lose 24-23

The Patriots let the Seattle Seahawks hang around and paid for it: they ultimately collapsed in the fourth quarter and fell to 3-3 on the season.


Patriots Extend Lead to 20-10 After Three

The New England Patriots lead the Seahawks 20-10 after three quarters in Seattle, but it could be more. The Patriots have left some opportunities hanging, and have just six points in their last three red zone possessions. A Tom Brady interception in the third quarter also cut a potential scoring drive short.

The team has stepped it up defensively after a poor first quarter, but will need to capitalize on opportunities in the fourth quarter to come away with the victory.

The Patriots have the ball and are driving to begin the fourth quarter.

Update: After a red zone interception by Tom Brady at the start of the fourth quarter, make that six points in the team's last four red zone opportunities on offense.


Patriots Take Control in 2nd, Lead Seattle 17-10

The New England Patriots took control of the game in the second quarter, and lead the Seattle Seahawks 17-10 at halftime.

New England began the second quarter by finishing off a long touchdown drive - 15 plays for 80 yards in total. On a third and goal from the one, Tom Brady found Aaron Hernandez on a fade to the back right corner of the end zone.

On defense, the Patriots stiffened up a bit in the second quarter, and were helped out by a Chandler Jones strip sack on Russell Wilson that was recovered by Rob Ninkovich. The Patriots turned the turnover into three points.

And while the Patriots certainly dominated the second quarter, they should be walking away with a much bigger lead than they currently have. The Patriots scored just three points in their final two red zone opportunities. Poor clock management also cost the Patriots points at the end of the first half, failing to turn a botched punt into any points after a Tom Brady intentional grounding on third and goal ran the final second of the first half off.

The Seahawks get the ball to start the second half, and the Patriots will need to continue to be opportunistic on defense, and show better containment on the edge - they were constantly overpursuing Russell Wilson, and also had poor backside help on their rushes.


Seattle Up 10-7 Over Patriots After 1st Quarter

1st quarter update as the Seahawks lead the Patriots 10-7 after one quarter in Seattle.
