Bill Belichick has high praise for Jared Goff

The Patriots are favored by nearly two touchdowns in their upcoming game against the Rams, but the team’s coaching staff isn’t taking its opponent lightly. New England’s only two losses this season have come in Foxboro, so it’s understandable that the team is being cautious heading into Sunday’s game.

Most people cannot help but laugh anytime the “Buttfumble” incident from a few years back is mentioned. But let’s just state the obvious and point out Bill Belichick is not most people.
