“Dion’s made plenty of positive comments in the past… I’m not sure about this one, but whatever it is, it is. Right now, we really need to worry about what we’re doing and our football team. And that’s really where our focus is. Whatever else anybody says or doesn’t say is out of our control. I don’t think it’s going to affect us too much one way or the other, whether it’s good or bad.”
The Patriots are some of the best when it comes to ignoring outside noise, so Lewis’ comments won’t affect them. But maybe the blowout loss to him and the Titans was a wakeup call to not take things for granted and to stay on their game in the second half of this season.
