Bennett: We want to avoid another 'blip' by beating Cardiff Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Ryan Bennett has issued a rallying cry to his team-mates ahead of this weekend’s match against Cardiff City. As reported by the Express and Star, Bennett is keen to avoid another ‘blip’ following Tuesday night’s below-par performance at Huddersfield Town. Wolves succumbed to defeat in West Yorkshire, with Steve Mounie scoring the only goal of the match in the first minute of stoppage time. More disappointingly,

Michael Bennett is singing a different tune about the Patriots now that he will be playing with the team.

The defensive end was traded Thursday to New England by the Eagles along with a 2020 seventh-round draft pick in return for a 2020 fifth-round pick, which has changed Bennett's outlook on the team.

"I used to hate the Patriots. I'd hate it because they'd win so much. I'd hate it because Tom Brady's hair was long. I'd hate it that [coach Bill] Belichick would wear sweaters. But now that I'm here, I love you. I love Tom Brady's hair," Bennett said, via the team's website.

"I love being a Patriot because, obviously, it's all about winning. I think everything about the organization is about team-first. It's just about doing what you need to do to get to where we want to go as a group. I think I love that."

Bennett, 33, spent last season with the Eagles. Before that, he played with the Buccaneers and Seahawks. While with the Seahawks, Bennett both won and lost Super Bowls against the Patriots.

Interestingly, Bennett's brother, Martellus, won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.

"He loved it, but the fact he loved it made me hate it," Michael Bennett said of his brother. "I was the brother that was the Super Bowl champ. Then he took that from me. Now I need to take that back."

Martellus Bennett retired last offseason after the Patriots placed him on injured reserve during the 2017 season due to shoulder and hamstring injuries.
