Five extra points: He's the G.O.A.T., but Bill Belichick was off his game

+

It feels odd saying this since yours truly has 347 fewer NFL wins than Bill Belichick, but the coaching G.O.A.T. was off his game big-time as his Patriots fell to the Vikings 33-26 at U.S. Bank on Thanksgiving night. The Vikings have been getting gashed by the run for the past three weeks, but the Patriots tried only 13 runs for 45 yards. Rhamondre Stevenson had only six carries for 36 yards, a 5.1 average with a long of 14. Yet Belichick and his staff kept ignoring the run. A late three-and-out included three passes that led to a 29-yard punt and the Vikings' go-ahead score. The Patriots also ran into the punter, turning a Vikings' three-and-out into a touchdown drive. Belichick also had no answer for Justin Jefferson while dropping a winnable road game against a rookie head coach – Kevin O'Connell – who used to be Belichick's third-string quarterback.
