New England Patriots Building Chemistry on Defense

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots have plenty of work to do on both sides of the ball as far as chemistry is concerned. Even though the offense struggled in that department on Thursday night in a 13-10 win against the New York Jets, it appears the defense is heading in the right direction. There is no question building chemistry on defense is something the team is determined to improve on each week.

“The more times you get out there in the field of battle with the guys and go through those experiences – you learn from them and you get better from them,” safety Steve Gregory said, according to Patriots.com.

“I think it creates a lot of opportunities for us to gel and understand that we’ve been in certain situations before, and you know how a guy is going to react or treat certain situations.”

With quarterback Tom Brady and the offense struggling to stay on the same page, it is comforting to see the defense, in particular the secondary, make strides from Week 1 to Week 2.

The fact is many would consider the Buffalo Bills to be the better team than the Jets, which is a big reason why the defense played better in Week 2. Regardless, there is no reason to take anything away from what the defensive backs were able to accomplish against the Jets. Three interceptions against a rookie quarterback is certainly nothing to brag about, but nonetheless, it shows signs of improvement.

Hopefully, the defense will continue to build chemistry at a decent pace so that the entire team can get on the same page.
