Patriots Must Focus on Getting Healthy During Bye Week Before Making Adjustments on Defense (Video)


The Patriots have a lot of work to do during their bye week. But first things first — they need to get healthy. That should be the team's focus this week, according to Mike Lombardi, despite the team's other concerns on the field.

Lombardi joined The Dennis and Callahan Show on WEEI on Friday morning, and was asked what Bill Belichick should be honing in on for his team during their week off. While the Patriots have some work to do on defense — particularly with the addition of new cornerback Aqib Talib — Lombardi thinks that New England can best take advantage of their break by resting up.

Check out more, including Lombardi' advice on how to handle Wes Welker's contract situation, in the above video.
