Patriots OLB Matt Judon is leading all outside linebackers in AFC Pro Bowl voting and isn’t concerned about his strong play dropping off despite not adding many sacks to his total recently.

“I think I’m all right,” Judon said, via “I didn’t have a stat line that I usually have last game, but I think I was back there. I think I was playing well. I just couldn’t get (Cousins) down. But I really care about winning, honestly. My conditioning feels well. I’m pretty healthy right now. This is kind of the time people get colds and stuff. You kind of can’t control that, but I’m trying to take the vitamins that I can and all that to support my immune system. So I feel pretty good right now.”

“I think any great player or any good player or somebody that’s having a decent year, later in the season and as he’s having that kind of season, people start saying, ‘Hey, we can’t let this guy mess up the game. We can’t let this guy get going,'” Judon added. “That’s what you get, and that’s kind of what you want, what you prepare for. Now, we’ve just got to scheme against that because we know it’s coming, and other people have got to get free within the scheme. That’s what you do. That’s something that hopefully a lot more teams do, and then we’re going to combat it with stuff that we do.”
