Damien Woody on facing his old team Dan Leberfeld

A long time ago (1999), Damien Woody was a first round draft pick of the New England Patriots out of Boston College.

What are his thoughts on the upcoming game against his former team?

“Our whole mindset is, it’s not about our opponent, it’s about us,” Woody said. “We know that New England is a tough opponent, but at the end of the day, it’s still about us, it’s still about what we do.

“We know we can beat them, but it’s not going to be easy. Especially at their place, they are tough up there. We just have to keep addressing the self-inflicting type of stuff. We’re going to take these days off and get prepared for probably the game of the year.

“You have two teams that are 9-2. You’ve got first place in the division riding on this game. We know what’s at stake here.”
