With the Patriots season on the line, and headed in to a game that many felt the Patriots had no chance of winning, Bill Belichick once again showed why he is the greatest game planner in the history of the NFL. The Patriots perfectly executed the game plan, and it is totally possible they are a much better team than their record shows. Cam Newton has said all along he has confidence in the players that are already in the locker room, and now that they have actually had time to practice together, it is beginning to show why he feels that way.
The Patriots were 6.5 point underdogs at home against the Ravens.
After the game, Cam Newton called Belichick a “football whisperer.”
“Listen, everything that coach Belichick coaches throughout the week, it tends to come up and I am beginning to think he either has like a Staples easy button or a Buffalo Wild Wings button, or just a straight direct line to the football gods because he’s like a football whisperer when it comes to anticipating what the game is going to be like how we need to win and things like that,” Newton said. “I am extremely impressed with that.
“But for me, keep trying to find ways to keep this team in a manageable situation offensively is one of the things that I have to keep doing and keep doing a better job of.”
