Former NFL Man Tips New England Patriots for Late Playoff Push After Cardinals Win

December 1, 2020 3:34 am

One must admit that veteran NFL coach Bill Belichick is one of the best in the game right now. After 20 years with Tom Brady, New England Patriots coach Belichick has faced one of his toughest spells in management in 2020.

After major opt-outs and the arrival of ‘unknown entity’ Cam Newton in Boston, Belichick has steered the Patriots to a 5-6 record heading into Week 13.

The 6-time Super Bowl winners made their way to a narrow 20-17 win against the Kyler Murray-led Arizona Cardinals on the weekend. Their display was so good that some critics are even pegging them to put up a late title challenge.

Can Cam Newton lead New England Patriots to the Playoffs in 2020?

Former Indianapolis Colts kicker Pat McAfee has gained quite a fan following on his daily YouTube show. One of the topics for debate on today’s installment of The Pat McAfee Show was the recent upheaval of the Patriots.

Here’s what McAfee and one of his co-hosts said on Monday as far as the Patriots’ comeback was concerned, “Oh yeah’ as Cam Newton said, rather have an ugly win than a pretty loss, couldn’t agree more…

“The Patriots are gonna win a few games because of Bill Belichick, and yesterday was a perfect example of that. He had a second-lowest passing total, his second-most rushing total,“ a member said on the show.

The Patriots are 3rd in the AFC East Division table behind Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins at the moment. They will now go up against Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13 as they aim to make a push for a playoff spot this season.

They have 2 tough games against Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills, respectively. They play their final regular-season game against the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium in Week 16.

Can coach Belichick pull off another miracle? We all know if anyone can do it, it’s him.
