BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Patriots got waxed by the Titans 34-10 yesterday in Tennessee. Not the way New England wanted to enter their bye week, and there are all sorts of concerns on both sides of the ball, not to mention the team's inability to win on the road. Pats are 2-3 outside Foxboro.

Tom Brady's break started early. Belichick sat him in favor of Brian Hoyer with seven minutes left in the loss, essentially waiving the white flag.

Brady and receiver Julian Edelman said the Pats have to improve quickly.

"Winning football takes a lot of things, takes a lot of good performances from a lot of people, and losing football is the exact opposite of that," Brady said. "We can't, not that we'd do this, but in the NFL, it's hard to win. You can't expect just to show up and win, that doesn't give the other team enough credit. Today we just played a bad game. You see what happens, and hopefully there's more urgency as we go forward. Our whole season's ahead of us, we'll see what we do with it."

"You better learn from a game like this," Edelman said. "The weeks get harder and harder. It's a good football team, well-coached, good players, you tip your hat to them. But we gotta watch this film, and we gotta fix it, because this is when you start separating or you start falling behind."

Pats visit the Jets two weeks from yesterday.
