Patriots hope to learn from Seahawks loss

Hindsight is usually reserved for super fans and sports talk radio, with the Patriots especially adept at focusing mostly on what’s down the road, not in the rearview mirror.

But in some cases — say, less than 24 hours after a stinging defeat in the Coffee Capital of the World — a fresh pot of flashback is brewed and ready to be served. It can be cathartic at times, combustible at others. On Monday, Patriots coaches were hoping that by reflecting on what happened late in Sunday’s 24-23 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, the same mistakes aren’t made again. The goal? Make it be a learning experience, painful as it was.
