Matthew Judon gave reporters a blunt assessment of the New England Patriots defense’s mindset going into games following the shutout victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Judon led the dominant defense with three total tackles, including one sack and a tackle for a loss, in the 25-0 win Thursday night.

“My teammates put me in position. They were pushing the pocket and making it hard for the quarterback to step up and making it easy for me to run the edge,” Judon added. 

“They just put me in a really good position to make those plays. When my number is called I have to go out there and make it, just like J.C. [Jackson] and Mac [Jones]. When their number is called they go there and do it. I am just one of the 11 of the defense.”

With the way he and the Patriots have been playing, Judon’s season may not come to an early end.

The Patriots are 7-4 this season.
