Patriots’ Bill Belichick ‘didn’t know’ Falcons beat Packers before AFC title game

Bill Belichick is master of the little things when it comes to preparation, so we actually, kind of believe him when he says he didn’t know which team New England would face in Cheap Authentic Soccer Jerseys Super Bowl LI as his Patriots dominated the Steelers on Sunday night in the AFC championship game.

Atlanta handled Green Bay on Sunday in the NFC title game, which wrapped up about 20 minutes before the Patriots-Steelers game began. When asked after New England’s win about his initial thoughts on Atlanta, Belichick claimed the matchup was news to him.

The Cowboys coaching staff has been assigned to the NFC side, while the Chiefs staff will handle AFC coaching duties.

Six Atlanta players were named to the Pro Bowl, a list that also includes linebacker Vic Beasley, kicker Matt Bryant, running back Devonta Freeman and center Alex Mack. Four Patriots players earned the honor, including Tom Brady for the 12th time, as well as LB Dont’a Hightower, defensive back Devin McCourty and special teamer Matthew Slater.

Bryant, by his standards, had a mediocre season, catching just 50 balls for 796 yards and eight touchdowns in 13 games.

Brees led the NFL this season with 5,208 passing yards and will be going to his 10th Pro Bowl.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who led the NFL with 40 touchdown passes, opted out of the Pro Bowl and will be replaced by Kirk Cousins.

The Redskins QB completed 67 percent of passes, compiling 4,917 yards Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys and 25 touchdowns, but tossed 12 interceptions and fumbled nine times.
