The Steelers conceded a franchise-high 55 points in their loss to Bill Belichick's side, which has led to criticism of the defense but Woodley believes that people are just looking for someone to point the finger at.
"Somebody has to take the blame," Woodley told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
"That's just the way it is when you're having a bad season. Last season I was the one to take the blame. It comes with the territory. Now people want to blame the defensive coordinator."
