New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick broke down the team’s best plays from week 8 against the Buffalo Bills and, as always, it’s must-watch TV.
Belichick highlights the Patriots improved red zone defense, with great coverage by Malcolm Butler, Eric Rowe, and Devin McCourty along with good adjustments in the open field by Chris Long, Dont’a Hightower, and Jamie Collins.
The second play is TE Rob Gronkowski’s big 53-yard touchdown as QB Tom Brady noticed the Bills didn’t have a deep safety. Gronkowski fakes an outside route to get a single step inside of the defensive back and that’s all Brady needs to deliver a strike.
The third play, and the biggest focus of the video, was the huge kick return by WR Danny Amendola, with special props to LB Shea McClellin, ED Geneo Grissom, S Brandon King, S Nate Ebner, and RB Brandon Bolden for opening up a huge crease for Amendola to cruise down the field.
The final play is the touchdown pass to WR Julian Edelman as Bills CB Stephon Gilmore doesn’t cover Edelman as the receiver motions across the formation. This allowed Brady to throw a quick swing pass to Edelman before the coverage could react and Edelman did the rest.
