FOXBORO, Mass. — New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick almost never has a negative word to say about his team’s upcoming opponent. More often than not, he overdoes it, heaping praise on teams that typically are far inferior to his.
Belichick went through that same weekly schpiel Wednesday, going on and on about how talented New England’s Week 15 foe is at running back, and at wide receiver, and under center, and up front on defense.
This time, though, that praise is deserved.
