The New England Patriots could have waited for the outcome of Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins before preparing for this weekend’s opponent. However, instead, they started getting ready for the Houston Texans after they beat the Oakland Raiders on Saturday.
Why is that, you might ask?
Bill Belichick said #Patriots started planning for Houston on Sat night because Pittsburgh vs. Miami …"you know.."

That’s ice cold, coach!
In case you missed the punch line, Belichick is saying the Patriots knew the Steelers were going to handle their business against the Fins.
Of course, it’s not a huge stretch to come to that conclusion before the game. Then again, it’s also not something the coach had to say anything about during his press conference on Monday, either.
But really, when was the last time Belichick gave a hoot about hurting anyone’s feelings as it relates to football? Especially as it relates to teams in the AFC East.
