Found November 14, 2012 on Patriots Life:
During his long tenure with the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick has encountered many Quarterbacks. On Sunday, he'll be coming up against one of the most special prospects to come out of college in the last 12 years. Rookie QB Andrew Luck is having an amazing year, on the wave of the momentum brought by the rallying force of Chuck Pagano. Combine this with a heavyweight like Tom Brady and an awful pass defense, and we might have one of the more memorable NFL games on our hands.However, Belichick isn't too bad at beating fresh faced signal callers. Against rookie/inexperienced QB's, his record is 18-7, and he's 1-1 in 2012, after a win against Jake Locker in his first start, and a defeat to Russell Wilson. Let's talk some cold hard football facts! Thanks to www.csnne.com for all information.QBs vs Belichick (Overall): 17/30 (57%) - 200 yards - 1 TD - 1 INT QBs vs Belichick (in 2012): 20/30 (67%) - 261 yards - 2 TD - 1 INTAndrew Luck in 2012: 23/40 (57%) - 292 ...
