Bill Belichick Credits Patriots’ Mental Toughness, Resiliency In Win Vs. Bills

It wasn’t pretty, but pretty isn’t a requirement for winning football games. The New England Patriots suffered multiple key injuries Monday night against the Buffalo Bills, but they did just enough to remain undefeated with a 20-13 victory over their AFC East foe. And they showed their head coach something along the way. “I don’t think there’s any way to understate the...

Report: Ray Lewis gave Bills pregame pep talk

ESPN analyst and former Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis wasn’t exactly rooting for the New England Patriots Monday when the team squared off against the Buffalo Bills. Lewis was one of just two of ESPN’s panelists to pick against the undefeated Pats on Monday, instead taking Rex Ryan’s Bills on the road. He also provided egregious commentary that he’d rather play for Ryan than...

Matt Patricia: Bill Belichick’s A ‘Wonderful Mentor And Great Friend’

Game planning for opposing offenses isn’t the only thing New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia can do. Far from it. Patricia started off as an aeronautical engineering major at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute before becoming an NFL assistant coach, which is something Patriots coach Bill Belichick is well aware of. “He’s really smart,” Belichick said...

ESPN Examines How Bill Belichick Has Been Underappreciated As Patriots Coach

Bill Belichick arguably is one of the best coaches, not just of his generation, but of all time. Belichick has posted a 185-65 record since taking over the New England Patriots in 2000, including a ridiculous 44-4 mark during the three years he was named NFL Coach of the Year (2003, 2007 and 2010). Belichick’s impressive resume and lack of individual awards to show for it sparked...

Rex Ryan on interference penalty: Would Bill Belichick have been flagged?

    Rex Ryan was assessed a 15-yard penalty during that bizarre inadvertent whistle fiasco Monday night after an official ruled that he interfered with the play by standing in the white area on the sideline. The Buffalo Bills coach took it personally, because he doesn’t think his counterpart would have been flagged if it happened on the other side of the field. On Tuesday...

Ray Lewis: “I’m not choosing nobody else but Rex Ryan” in Ryan-Belichick debate

It can be difficult for former players to offer a fair opinion on their former coaches or organizations, and ESPN analyst Ray Lewis provided what seems to be an example of that Monday. On ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown ahead of the Bills-Patriots game, Lewis said he’d take Buffalo head coach Rex Ryan (his former defensive coordinator in Baltimore) over New England head coach Bill...

Did Rex Ryan make referee blow inadvertent whistle?

The “inadvertent whistle” play from Monday night’s Patriots-Bills game will go down as one of the worst blemishes for NFL officials during the 2015 season. Could it have been avoided if Rex Ryan wasn’t screaming in the face of the guy who was responsible for it? After referee Gene Steratore sorted out the debacle and awarded Danny Amendola a reception (video here), Rex Ryan...

Ray Lewis reaches moron status: ‘If you’re asking me Bill Belichick or Rex Ryan, I’m taking Rex Ryan all day’

I’m not sure if Ray Lewis is still using deer antler spray, but now would be a great time to stop if so. Not only did Ray pick the Bills to defeat the New England Patriots at home, he’d apparently take Rex Ryan over one of the greatest to coach the game. “I’m not choosing nobody else but Rex Ryan,” Lewis said. “If you’re asking me Bill Belichick or Rex Ryan, I’m...

Patriots Advanced Stats: Malcolm Butler Locks Down Another No. 1 Wideout
