NFL Twitter Delighted After Bill Belichick’s ‘Rebuilt’ New England Patriots Become AFC’s Top Seed

Published 12/06/2021, 3:33 AM EST

Bill Belichick started off the season with a 2-4 record. It looked as if the New England Patriots would not make the playoffs again, just like in 2020. The NFL was under the impression that Belichick did not make Tom Brady, and it was the other way round. It was going to be the second adversity-driven season for the franchise, but one man believed in his players, Bill Belichick.

Soon the Patriots rose back up with back-to-back wins and now they stand at the top of the AFC East division. And now as they secure the spot above the Buffalo Bills, it seems as if the Super Bowl winner Belichick is back at it again with the dark force by his side.

Bill Belichick has the force with him

It’s not easy to make a name as the most successful head coach in the NFL of all time. And it’s most certainly not easy to stand up to that name on every occasion, season after season. But Belichick is the one who can make it possible. He has done it seven times before and is on the verge of doing it again.

The 8-4 New England Patriots lead the AFC as the No. 1 seeded team above the 8-4 Titans. Belichick and his super coaching instincts have made it possible time and time again. However, this time with a new apprentice, Mac Jones. It looks as if the Super Bowl is a standoff between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick on proving who is overshadowed by whom.

Bill Belichick has been determined in his approach ever since the season started. As he chose to bet on the right horse and get rid of the one he believed to be useless to him (Mac Jones over Cam Newton). Although they had a bumpy start earlier this season, it was soon overcome by a series of wins.
