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.”
