New England benefited from three fumbles to defeat the Broncos on Sunday
John Fox admits 'shock value' in defeat
"Well, going into a little bit of what happened before that, with 41 seconds left in regulation we watched a 70-yard bomb go over our head," Fox said. "There is a certain amount of shock value, a little bit like a prize fighter taking a right cross on the chin at the end of a round. We're looking to get out of the round. That might not be the ideal time to go for a knockout punch.
"One of the things, when you're a coach, you're around the players for 20 games prior to that, including preseason. You get a little bit of a better feel of where they're at—the look in the eye, their feeling. It was pretty devastating. It just didn't seem the right time. It didn't look like the right look, understandably, to go for the jugular right about then."
