The New England Patriots beat the Denver Broncos in overtime on Sunday night. It was a game marred with turnovers, and each team lost three fumbles. Patriots running back Stevan Ridley lost one on Sunday night, his fourth this season.
“First of all, this night is about the team and how we pulled it out,” Ridley said after the game, via the Boston Herald. “We fought back, being down 24. For me, it’s almost disgusting — consecutive weeks, and personally as a player, my team deserves better. I come in. I work and bust my (butt) every day to come in here and not make the same mistakes. To have the same mistakes happen, there’s something I’ve got to do different, I’ve got to do better.”
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was noncommittal about Ridley’s future and side stepped questions about his fumbling problems.
“I’m frustrated, but it’s part of the game,” Ridley said, via MassLive.com. “I think that as a player you’re going to have your ups and downs, but the main thing is you just have to stay focused and keep your eyes on the prize at the end of the day.
“I’m not going to get too far down. I’m going to put a little more pressure on myself to go out there and practice and try to change up some thing because I can’t keep doing this and it’s sickening.”
