How Did Patriots Coach Bill Belichick Get A Black Eye?
If there’s any team in the league that needed a 1st round bye to get healthy, it was the New England Patriots. Bill Belichick took a different route and came out of the bye with a black eye.

I imagine the conversation went something like this:
Media: Can you tell us what happened to your eye?
Belichick: We’re on to Cincinnati.
Media: Uh, you’re playing home vs KC.
Belichick: On to Cincy!
Actual conversation about his eye:
“I don’t think we need to list the coaches on the injury report,” Belichick said, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “But I’m sure if we’re required to do it, we’ll do it.”
