Patriots left tackle Matt Light didn't make any excuses for that one play in the fourth quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday.

When linebacker Jason Taylor got by Light, he sacked Tom Brady and forced a fumble recovered by the Jets. It was the last offensive possession for the Patriots in the 28-14 loss.

So what went wrong? "If you don't block them, they usually make pretty good plays and that's unfortunately what happened," said Light earlier today.

Light was with Wes Welker and a few other celebrities at the Boston Sports Stars for One Family Golf Tournament in Mashpee.

Light didn't need to be reminded of his history with Taylor, but he said he appreciates the competition.

"You can play a game great for 59 minutes of fun and screw it up once and it doesn't work out too well, but JT and I have had some classic battles over the years and I look forward to that match up," Light said.

After watching film of Sunday's game, Light said overall the offensive line was able to communicate well but there were some things the group will work to improve.

"When you watch the film they threw a lot at us and for the most part when they dialed it up, we had an answer for it," Light said. "I think tempo wise we could have done a much better job in the second half of getting up to the line scrimmage and making decisions and getting after them but communication wise was alright for playing on the road and against that team and doing some of the things the way they do it."
