Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid talked to the media about making adjustments during the Eagles' bye week, after losing 26-23 to the Detroit Lions in overtime on Sunday.

With a 3-3 record and a bye week ahead of them, Andy Reid wants to use the time off to "tear things apart" he said during a Monday press conference, according to Philly.com. "I still believe we have a good football team," the head coach said, pointing out that there was plenty of time left in the season to make adjustments.

Reid was critical of a number of things on Monday, following the Philadelphia Eagles' 26-23 overtime loss to the Detroit Lions. The head coach called the Eagles' final two drives, during which what had been a 10-point lead turned into an overtime defeat, "pathetic."

When speaking about the two interceptions and fumble that the Eagles gave away on Sunday Reid said it was "ridiculous" that the Eagles led the NFL with 17 turnovers.

On the topic of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, Reid said he was still expected to make the in-game defensive play calls for the Eagles.

Following the bye week, the Eagles will host the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. ET.
