No one knows how to play the injury report quite like Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.
Every week of every season, it seems like Belichick’s top priority is to confuse the heck out of opposing teams and fantasy football owners alike, as he lists just about every player on his roster as “questionable,” whether they’re dealing with a broken leg or a broken finger nail.
You’d think the Pats’ head coach would stick with the same strategy heading into the team’s most important game of the season, but in true Belichickian form, he did the complete opposite.
Prior to New England’s AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs, their injury report is…COMPLETELY EMPTY!
That’s right. No Tom Brady or Sony Michel knee injury. No Rob Gronkowski ankle injury. Everyone is actually HEALTHY!!!
Exactly how rare is such a sight in New England? So rare that it’s the first time this has happened in a non-Super Bowl contest over the past five years.
Something seems fishy to me. Makes me wonder if Belichick and company are trying to hide something from us.
