Kyle Arrington Says Patriots’ Bye Week Came At Perfect Time As Defense Battles Injuries (Video)

The Patriots defeated the Steelers 55-31 on Sunday and head into their bye week with an impressive 7-2 record, which puts them atop the AFC East.

New England has been forced to deal with a lot of injuries to some of its most important defensive players this season, including nose tackle Vince Wilfork, linebacker Jerod Mayo and top cornerback Aqib Talib. But like they often do, the Patriots have found ways to win with other players raising their performance in the absence of the injured stars.

Check out what Patriots defensive back Kyle Arrington had to say about the team’s play through nine weeks in the video above.
