Patriots drop back-to-back games for first time since 2012, fall to Eagles 35-28

FOXBORO - For the first time since 2012 the Patriots have lost back-to-back games.

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 35-28.

Leading up to this game, Bill Belichick warned that the Eagles special teams were the best the Pats have seen this season.

That's where the Pats were exposed. Patriots' special teams were unusually off.

A blocked punt was where things started getting troublesome.

Najee Goode recovered and scored with just 15 seconds left before the half.

In the third quarter, Tom Brady from the shotgun, his passed was tipped. Malcolm Jenkins intercepted it and took it 99 yards to bring the Eagles ahead 21-14.

Then with under five minutes left in the third, the Patriots punted it to Darren Sproles who took it 83 yards to extend the Eagles lead 28-14.

Tom Brady took blame for the mishaps after the game:

"That's about as bad as you can do for a QB," said Brady on his passing efforts in the third quarter.

"On the interception, you know? it was a dumb play," said Brady. "There's really not much chance of a completion."

"I didn't get enough on it and we were in the end zone and make the play and it was just a bad play by me," Brady said. "No one can save us from that. That's my fault."

Don't forget the Patriots were without Rob Gronkowski due to a bone bruise. Some expect him back next week.

We will back here on Wednesday to give you a mid-week practice report with updates.
