The demand for a win is at an all-time for Bill Belichick and his men. And with an easy fixture against Jacksonville, the Patriots can also boost up their lost morale.

Bill Belichick is in awe of Trevor Lawrence

Ahead of the Patriots’ clash against the Jaguars, Belichick, when quipped about the Jaguars’ Trevor Lawrence, the veteran HC said that the rookie QB had shown tremendous improvement over the season. “I think he’s gotten more comfortable as the season’s gone on and gotten comfortable with the offense,” Belichick said.

The Patriots coach was then pointed at the fact that Lawrence hasn’t exactly delivered great performances this season. In response, Belichick maintained the same stance and felt he would be a great player in the future.

“He’s pretty good at all of them [throws, conversions, playmaking] and continues to get better. So I think he’s had a good year and I think he’ll be a solid NFL player. Maybe great, I don’t know, but he’s certainly made a lot of progress this year.”
