Patriots clinch playoff bye despite poor play

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Bill Belichick sounded like a coach whose team was just eliminated from playoff contention rather than one that clinched a first-round bye.

Tom Brady was sacked four times and had a poorer passer rating than Geno Smith. New England's offense gained just 52 yards in the first half. It took a late surge to eke out a one-point win over one of the NFL's worst teams.

"We just didn't execute very well," Belichick said Monday, "in any part of the game."
