INDIANAPOLIS — The Patriots coach also lamented the time his defense spent on the field against a pretty athletic Ben Davis team.
"I don't think we were intimidated. I think my defense got tired because we just had way too many three and outs. Obviously that's one (game) we'd like to have back. Ben Davis is a good football team and you have to play well to beat a team like that, especially at their place," Barrett said.
"When you're playing a team like at and you're battling, you've got to make some things happen. And just never got that. We never got over the hump. We've got a lot of football left and I feel good about our team. We just have to regroup. This is really the first batch of adversity we've faced. Across the board we can match up with (Ben Davis). We just didn't do it (Friday night)."
