JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It seems like a yearly ritual of late where the Patriots suffer a tough loss early in the season and panic ensues across New England and the league.

Following Week 2's 31-20 loss to the Jaguars, Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy is expecting more of same thing, but he believes the Patriots will correct their mistakes.

“Everybody’s going to panic, right? It’s New England,” Van Noy said to reporters. “We’re disappointed in the loss. We have to look at the tape and each other and figure it out. It’ll get done.”

Wide receiver Chris Hogan echoed Van Noy's point.

“At the end of the day, it’s Week 2,” he said. “Obviously, we have a lot to improve on, and that’s what we’re going to focus on when we go in and watch the film. But we’re going to move on. We’re moving on to the next week.”

Nothing went right for the Patriots Sunday as there were breakdowns across the board -- coaching, offense, defense and special teams.

Obviously, it isn't as easy as just showing up and the problems will be instantly fixed. The Patriots will need to put in the work and it starts this week in preparing for Matt Patricia and the Lions next Sunday night.

“We have to bounce back — we’ve done it before,” Rob Gronkowski said. “We just have to take away from this game the things we did wrong and go back out practice correct everything. The only thing we have to do is bounce back now. [Sunday] wasn’t good at all.”

Since 2003, the Patriots are 45-6 following a loss in the regular season.
