Patriots shake loss to 49ers, focus on Jaguars

(Continued)

“We did enough things to make it a competitive game in the end,” Belichick said, “but we had too many things that weren’t good enough.”

The Patriots did show an ability to rally from a huge deficit, though. They may need to show that skill again, later on.

“I love the way that we fought the whole game and, again, you can’t put yourself in a hole like we did early in the game and expect to win those games,” Ninkovich said. “Obviously, you don’t want to have that feeling of a loss, but, again, I just go back to taking this as a learning experience.”

Of course, it might come at the expense of a bye.
